Washington, D.C., December 17, 2008 - The National Turkey Federation (NTF) and its members congratulate former Iowa Governor Tom Vilsack on being appointed as the Secretary of Agriculture. Governor Vilsack led one of the most important agricultural states in the nation, and a state that has significant turkey production and processing. His background should give him a solid understanding of the dynamics of the turkey industry, which will be significant given the challenges facing our industry and all of animal agriculture.
