The Biden admiration last week announced the nomination of Alexis Taylor as USDA Undersecretary for Trade. 

Taylor currently serves as the Oregon Director of Agriculture, after previously overseeing the USDA’s Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services during the Obama administration. 

Taylor is an Iowa native, who moved to Oregon after working 12 years in Washington D.C. 

U.S. Grains Council President and CEO Ryan LeGrand congratulated Taylor on her appointment, saying she is “a highly qualified candidate to be the USDA Undersecretary for Trade.” 

National Association of Wheat Growers CEO Chandler Goule says, “I have worked with Alexis for over fifteen years and know the industry appreciates her experience and understanding of the agriculture community and trade issues.” 

U.S. Meat Export Federation President and CEO Dan Halstrom adds, “USMEF had many opportunities to work with Taylor in her previous roles at USDA and we are confident she will be a strong and effective advocate for U.S. exporters and all of U.S. agriculture.”
