Farming is a huge part of the economy of Northeast Louisiana, and according to Louisiana Agriculture and Forestry Commissioner Mike Strain, there’s huge potential growth in the business of agriculture.
As part of the occasional series, “Conversations with the President,” ULM President Nick Bruno spoke with Commissioner Strain, who started the interview by revealing his own ties to the ULM campus as a student.
Dr. Mike Strain gave a lecture on the University of Louisiana at Monroe campus on Thursday, Sept. 22. A native of Covington, Strain earned a Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine from LSU in 1983. Strain holds a commission from the U. S. Food and Drug Administration and is Treasurer of the Interstate Pest Control Compact.
He was elected as Commissioner of the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry in 2007.
