Larry Mitchell was appointed administrator of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration on June 3, according to a report from the USDA.gov website.

Mitchell is responsible for a variety of programs that facilitate the marketing of livestock, poultry, meat, cereals, oilseeds, and related agricultural products, and to promote fair and competitive trading practices for the overall benefit of consumers and American agriculture. The markets serviced by the USDA Grain Inspection, Packers and Stockyards Administration represent a total economic value of approximately $170 billion annually, with exports contributing more than $28.7 billion to the U.S. economy.

Prior to his appointment, Mitchell served as the associate director of the Office of Advocacy and Outreach at USDA and previously served as deputy administrator for Farm Programs of the Farm Service Agency of USDA and deputy vice president at Commodity Credit Corp. in the 1990s.

Before coming to Washington in 1989, Mitchell was a grain and cotton farmer in Texas. He earned a bachelor’s degree from Tarleton State University in plant and soil science.

Mitchell succeeds J. Dudley Butler, who “resigned after the Obama administration weakened the rewrite of the rule governing the Packers and Stockyards Act,” according to a June 1 Hagstrom Report.
