Secretary Shafer Spoke

USDA Secretary Shafer was on the phone with the cabinet before coming in to speak to our NASDA group last evening. We all knew it was about the crazy week the financials and big companies had this week. We got no scoop on the news, so we will wait and see if there is any direct news coming from the cabinet and the President. Like we will know if that is what they were talking about…

The Secretary covered the usual items, with special emphasis on the Farm Bill and its implementation. No real news from the speech – if there was I missed it. The Secretary’s phone did ring twice during the speech. He assured us it was not the President or the Cabinet.
