Julie Kenney, Deputy Iowa Department of Agriculture:
Julie has a passion for agriculture and has been a tremendous asset to the Department of Agriculture. She grew up on her family’s crop and livestock farm near Lohrville, Iowa and currently owns and operates a corn and soybean farm in Story County. Her background and experience have been a natural fit for the Department.
As Deputy Secretary, Kenney assists in management responsibilities for the Department focused on the areas of personnel, budget and policy. She also supports the Department’s efforts to be accessible to Iowans by traveling regularly to represent the Department at meetings across the state.
“The Department plays an important role in protecting consumers, improving our natural resources and promoting Iowa agriculture,” Kenney says.
