California Secretary of Agriculture Karen Ross returns to Cal Poly

Last week, California Secretary of Agriculture Karen Ross visited campus for the third time this year to speak with students and faculty about the state of California agriculture. Throughout the one-hour forum, Secretary Ross addressed the audience on issues facing California, and allowed students to spend the bulk of the discussion asking questions. Here are a few of the most notable quotes from Secretary Ross!

“Conservation as a way of life is starting to happen, and all of us have a role to play in that.”

“The most important commodity in agriculture is trust.”

“Communicating in a sincere and authentic way is going to be essential in getting those [new] products to the marketplace.”

“Agriculture is being covered by business writers, science writers, health writers — there are very few agriculture writers.”

“Every place I go I can always tell if they’re a Cal Poly graduate.”
