LORETTO, Pa. – Agriculture is a prominent industry in the state of Pennsylvania. And legislation passed by lawmakers effect our dairy farms and impact their production. This week the U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue spoke at the dairy summit at Mt. Aloysius College in Cresson. The summit was centered around the agriculture industry and served as a listening session of dairy farming in the state.
