When the State Fair begins tomorrow Minnesota’s next generation of farmers will share some of the spotlight thrown on agriculture. U-S Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says the young farmers of today will be the key to innovation that will sustain the industry.

“It is an exciting new world, you just have to continue to have hope, ok? It is going to make young people want to get into this business.”

Vilsack says one of the U-S-D-A goals is to make sure young people who want to farm have the resources necessary to enter the industry.
