Secretary of Ag

Our class was able to have the previous Secretary of Agriculture come speak to us last Monday and I found it very interesting that a lot of the information he shared were things discussed by Georgie and in my One Health class. I never knew the history of Delaware agriculture and the impact such a small state like ours could have on the U.S and Global economy. I thought it was cool to learn that the majority of farms within the U.S (98%) are family farms and that there has been a 170% increase in production with a 26% decrease in land. I found it very interesting just how relient other countries and markets are on the U.S and their corn production.
