New Mexico’s top ag official to serve as voice for farming, ranching in the West
New Mexico Secretary of Agriculture Jeff Witte has been elected to preside over the organization that unifies the voices of state departments of agriculture in the West.
Witte assumed leadership of the Western Association of State Departments of Agriculture (WASDA) this weekend during the annual meeting of the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) in Burlington, Vermont. He will serve in the role, as well as on the NASDA board, from now until September 2015, all the while continuing to lead the New Mexico Department of Agriculture (NMDA).
NMDA to promote local foods at New Mexico State Fair
For two solid decades now, several hundred people of all ages have lined up during the New Mexico State Fair to help answer one simple question: What’s the best New Mexico salsa money can buy?
Fairgoers will queue up again this year for the 20th installment of New Mexico Department of Agriculture’s (NMDA) popular Battle of the Salsas. The event takes place Saturday, September 13, from 1 to 3 p.m. in the courtyard of the Agriculture Building on the fairgrounds.Print This Page
