BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring will lead a regional group of his peers.
Goehring this week was elected president of the Midwest Association of State Departments of Agriculture during the group's annual meeting in Indianapolis. He succeeds Joe Kelsay, his counterpart in Indiana.
Goehring says he looks forward to leading a discussion on policy issues that affect Midwestern farmers and ranchers, including an increasing need for farm labor.
States that belong to the association are both Dakotas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Ohio and Wisconsin. Next year's annual meeting will be in the southwest North Dakota tourist town of Medora.
