Council Welcomes Kentucky Department Of Agriculture To Membership

The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) is pleased to welcome the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) as a new member.

The origins of the KDA trace back to 1817 and it was formally established as its own governmental department in 1962. The KDA oversees several responsibilities including agricultural marketing programs, agricultural licensing and policy, consumer protection, environmental considerations and veterinarian services.

The department also sponsors community-focused programs such as hunger prevention initiatives and Junior Chef, a competition promoting cooking skills for young Kentuckians.

The KDA prides itself on impacting the state’s economy and the strength of its farming network.
