NAIG ELECTED VICE PRESIDENT OF THE MIDWEST ASSOCIATION OF STATE DEPARTMENTS OF AGRICULTURE

DES MOINES – Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Mike Naig was elected to serve as Vice President of the Midwest Association of State Departments of Agriculture (MASDA) by his peers from 12 states across the region. Naig was elected during the MASDA annual meeting, which was held in Keystone, SD on June 17-20.

“I appreciate the confidence of my MASDA colleagues in electing me to this position. Many of the issues facing farmers and the ag industry are the same across the Midwest, so it is important we are coordinating with our colleagues at other State Departments of Agriculture,” Naig said. “These meetings allow us to have open and frank conversations about the issues impacting agriculture in our states, such as trade, water quality and animal disease response planning.”

MASDA is comprised of the Commissioners, Secretaries, and Directors of Agriculture from Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

As a subset of the larger National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, the organization exists to grow and enhance agriculture by forging partnerships and creating consensus to achieve sound policy outcomes between state departments of agriculture, the federal government and stakeholders.
