Ag Secretary Wants You to Eat Cheese

Who said government workers don't work weekends? Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey decided to taut the power of cheese at about 2:45 Sunday afternoon. Here's the message he sent out on Twitter, encouraging you to add more cheese to your diet. And help the farmers. I added a few comments from people who want to add more than just the cheese, please.

Bill Northey 25% of US cheese used on pizza. 1 xtra oz of cheese ea pizza would use 2.5b lbs/yr. Help dairy farmers - add some cheese to your pizza.

How about adding some extra sausage, bacon, ham, etc. to that pizza too and helping out the pork producers??
