Next month, the Obama administration will take control of the White House. Who will President-Elect Barack Obama choose to head up the United States Department of Agriculture?
Jim Wiesemeyer, of Informa Economics, says his list is continuing to expand. "My list is growing, which tells me they don't know, no one knows,” he says.
Hear who's on the list:
The Food and Agriculture Policy Summit is being held Dec. 2 – 4 in Washington, D.C. At a time of historic challenges and opportunities in agriculture and the food system, Farm Journal and Farm Foundation are collaborating for this event.
