U.S. appoints new agriculture secretary in last stages of resolving beef ban

US - A new U.S. agriculture secretary was named Thursday, a development welcomed by the Canadian Cattlemen's Association at a critical juncture for resolving the beef battle with Canada. Mike Johanns, the Nebraska governor, was chosen to replace Ann Veneman, who led efforts to protect the U.S. food supply after the mad cow crisis and resolve the trade dispute. "I look forward to building on her good work," said Johanns, 54, who was born in Iowa and raised on a dairy farm.
