Before any country can be a great nation it must first be a nation great in agriculture. It is imperative that we have the best department of agriculture and forestry in order to ensure that our food is safe, our fiber production is among the best and our animals are strong and healthy. I am optimistic and results-oriented about the continued progress of our department and remain dedicated to this duty.
We have great opportunities to work together to help our farmers, rural communities, and urban citizens remain productive, profitable, and health through effective policy and leadership. I look forward to serving another term as your Commissioner of Agriculture and Forestry and continue my commitment to growing Louisiana agriculture one farmer at a time.
