Perdue and Fischer

Sen. Deb Fischer and her husband Bruce recently welcomed U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue to their family ranch south of Valentine.

Perdue joined in a roundtable discussion with more than 60 friends and neighbors, Fischer said.

“We had a wide-ranging conversation about the challenges facing ranchers in Nebraska and across our country,” she said in a letter to constituents.

Perdue highlighted news of new beef export opportunities to China.

Fisher and Perdue said an agreement with China will better enable American ranchers to sell world-class beef to a growing market.

“Like me, he's convinced that when they get a taste of American beef they're going to want more of it,” Fischer said.

Perdue said Nebraskans' job is to produce the food, and his goal is to sell it to the world.

“I'm pleased that Secretary Perdue is committed to listening, acting, and standing up for rural America,” Fischer said.
