USDA Office of Communications provides educational video features; training videos and speeches already being produced would reach wider audiences when posted on public sites that offer a library of content. Our hope is that Department and agency Public Service announcements would have vastly expanded audience awareness, as well as an official source with more than 100 years in the business.
