Rep. Jim Hagedorn (MN-01) will host U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue for an agriculture roundtable on Wednesday, Aug. 7 with southern Minnesota agriculture industry leaders.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Secretary Perdue to southern Minnesota where agriculture is the backbone of the region,” said Hagedorn. “Our agriculture producers create the best products in the world and we want to hear their feedback on markets, growing conditions, hiring, regulations and more. I expect we’ll have an opportunity to discuss how the United States-Mexico-Canada Trade Agreement will help the local economy. Our goal is to ensure Washington is attentive to the agriculture industry.”
