On a visit to a family-owned creamery in Ely, Iowa, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack announced a pilot program to support the development of bio-based products that have lower carbon footprints. Secretary Vilsack described the program as “a critical part of USDA’s commitment to enhancing the circular economy and providing additional revenue streams for farmers.”

He said that the program, created under President Biden’s historic Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, will help farmers turn field residues and waste into value-added products that drive economic development in rural communities.
