(DES MOINES) Gov. Kim Reynolds announced on Thursday she will name Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship Deputy Secretary Mike Naig as the new Iowa Secretary of Agriculture, citing a commitment to continuity and stability. Naig will become Secretary of Agriculture upon Bill Northey's resignation. He will serve the remainder of Northey's term.

"Mike Naig has been a dependable deputy for Bill Northey, serving since September 2013," Gov. Reynolds said. "He has gained the experience, knowledge and staff connections necessary to complete Bill's term through January 2019. I am pleased Mike has stepped up to serve his fellow Iowans in this elevated role."

Northey was confirmed on Tuesday by the U.S. Senate to be Under Secretary of Agriculture for Farm and Foreign Agricultural Services at the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
