Midwestern state agriculture directors, commissioners, and secretaries are recognizing the people across the food supply chain who make Thanksgiving meals possible.
Randy Romanski is the Secretary for Wisconsin’s Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection. He says the top ag officials from each state have a regular discussion group where they share ideas. “All of our colleagues thought we should get together,” he says. “We should thank producers and veterinarians and processors, and all of the people that provide healthy, nutritious food products for us and our families, especially around the holidays but all year round.”
Indiana State Department of Agriculture Director Bruce Kettler says each state leader is highlighting a different part of the supply chain.
