The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) provides American agriculture with valuable tools and services that help create marketing opportunities. One of the ways that AMS serves America’s diverse agricultural industry is through the coordination and oversight of research and promotion programs, federal advisory committees and marketing order boards and councils.
Having transparency and objectivity within these organizations to guide USDA is crucial to the long-term success of the industries we serve. By leveraging expertise from the private sector to identify best practices and overcome challenges, the boards, committees and councils help shape and ensure the future of American agriculture.
