Address Given At The Annual Convention Of The Ground Water Management Districts Association, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

It is good to be back in Nebraska. As many of you know, water resources was my major field of endeavor a dozen years ago when I was on the faculty of University of Nebraska. My Ph.D. dissertation involved water law and water administration in the central United States, and I know you have a number of states represented here that were involved in that particular study. Those states were Kansas, Colorado, Iowa and Nebraska, but with some spillover into other geographic areas as well. At that time, of course, I spent a lot of time with people like ...


Major Issues Facing Agriculture As Our Nation Moves Toward A Domestic And International Food And Agricultural Policy, Clayton K. Yeutter Nov 1977

Major Issues Facing Agriculture As Our Nation Moves Toward A Domestic And International Food And Agricultural Policy, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

It is a pleasure for me to speak this evening before such a distinguished group of agribusiness and academic representatives, all of whom have a common interest. Twenty years ago, that interest would have been denominated as "agricultural policy". Today it would be called "food policy", which presumably is a broader term. Food policy is usually defined to encompass the interests of everyone in the production and marketing process from producer to consumer. It is by no means limited geographically, but encompasses people and firms who are involved -- directly or indirectly, domestically and internationally - in the food business. Allegedly, this ...


U. S. Trade Policy - Procedures And Prospects, Clayton K. Yeutter Oct 1977

U. S. Trade Policy - Procedures And Prospects, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

To fully understand U.S. trade policy today, one must also understand its process of evolution. ~n particular, one must comprehend our trade policy of the late 1960's and early 1970 1 s, culminating in passage of the Trade Act of 1974. Putting it another way, a Brazilian businessman will be able to predict with much more accuracy what the U.S. will or will not do on trade issues in the coming years if he knows what the U.S. did or did not do on trade issues during the past few years, and why. Our trade policy ...


Issues Facing U.S. Farmers And Their Cooperatives, Clayton K. Yeutter Jan 1977

Issues Facing U.S. Farmers And Their Cooperatives, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

It is a pleasure for me to speak this morning to this dynamic group of young farm families. Those of .us who were actively involved in farming a few years back are continually amazed at the talent that has come along" to succeed us. Farming has indeed changed more than we realize. That is not a new discovery, for thousands of articles have been written about the technological revolution in agriculture. But relatively little attention has been given to the change in farm families themselves. without doubt, the quality level of young farmers and their wives - whether it be measured ...

Food And Foreign Affairs: The Role Of Agricultural Trade Policy In International Commerce And Domestic Relations, Clayton K. Yeutter

Clayton K. Yeutter, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Papers

Until that now famous series of Russian grain sales took place in 1972 agricultural policy in the United States had begun to lose its sex appeal! It had its challenges in the drought and depression years of the '30s, and again during World War II, but in both those cases the concern was whether we could produce enough for our needs. In the earlier of those decades, we had an additional preoccupation with the economic survival of our farming communities. Farm families had to.be strong in every sense of the word to live through the '30s.
