ASA Congratulates Harden on Confirmation

American Soybean Association President Danny Murphy says recently confirmed Deputy Ag Secretary Krysta Harden was a treasured member of the soy family for many years. He says she took the same work ethic and persistence she showed at ASA to champion all farmers and USDA stakeholders as Secretary Tom Vilsack's Chief of Staff. Murphy says Harden is a consensus builder and exactly what is needed to connect the department's diverse group of stakeholders. As Americans become further removed from the sources of their food, fiber and fuel - Murphy says USDA faces a daunting challenge - as does all of agriculture. He says the American Soybean Association is confident Harden will meet this challenge with the same balanced, pragmatic approach she has always used to tackle each issue. Murphy adds ASA looks forward to working with Harden in her new role.
