Senator Boozman says the USDA’s export sales situation is ‘costly and avoidable’

Senator John Boozman is calling on the USDA to focus more on day-to-day functions, rather than the Biden Administration’s political goals.

The most recent weekly export sales data collected by the department’s Foreign Ag Service was taken down not long after being published due to what USDA is calling ‘unanticipated difficulties’ with their new system. The service says they will not be able to publish weekly sales until it is fixed.

Senator Boozman sent a letter to Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, asking to prioritize providing stability to farmers and the industry’s stakeholders. He called this an ‘unforced error’ that was costly and avoidable.
