Heartland Farmers Worried about New USDA Leadership

Hearings into President Trump’s nominee for agriculture secretary start Thursday. The nominee is Sonny Perdue, a former governor of Georgia. Bucking a recent trend, Perdue is not from the Midwest ... and that’s leaving many farmers in the Great Plains wondering what to expect. As Harvest Public Media’s Amy Mayer reports, farmers' biggest concerns are not about which political party is in power.
