Sec. Vilsack speaks to new market opportunities

Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack kicked off his first full week back in USDA.

The former Iowa Governor told farmers he wants to create new market opportunities so they’re not solely dependent on sales of commodities.

Vilsack offers some insight on how the prospect of a carbon market could be developed.

Vilsack adds collecting ag waste to create new products could also be a new market opportunity, much like the dairy industry is already finding new uses for manure.
