George Eustice has returned to Defra under Boris Johnson after resigning over Brexit delays in February.
George Eustice has been appointed as Minister of State at Defra.
It follows his resignation in February 2019 over Brexit delays.
Mr Eustice, a Brexiteer, resigned when then Prime Minister Theresa May promised to allow MPs a vote on delaying Brexit if her deal is rejected.
The MP for Camborne and Redruth was in the role for five-and-a-half years before stepping down.
But following Boris Johnson’s victory in the Conservative leadership election, Mr Eustice has been reappointed.
Mr Eustice comes from a farming background in Cornwall where his family still run a fruit farm, restaurant and farm shop.
They also have a herd of South Devon cattle and the country’s oldest herd of the rare breed of pig, the British Lop.
Thérèse Coffey, the Conservative MP for Suffolk Coastal, has also been appointed appointed Minister of State at Defra under the new administration.
The National Sheep ASsociation (NSA) said with the reshuffle appearing to be complete, it hoped progress could now recommence.
In response to Mr Eustice's reappointment, NSA chief executive Phil Stocker said thanked outgoing Farming Minister Robert Goodwill for his 'positive engagement'.
“Robert only held this role for some 5 months, but it was clear he had a real passion and interest for farming and food production.”
He also welcomed Mr Eustice back into the position of Minister of State responsible for farming.
“He clearly has a great depth of experience and interest in farming and will re-join a team that includes Therese Coffey as Minister responsible for the environment, and David Rutley and Lord Gardner as under Secretaries of State, all of which have held previous posts.
“This continuation of an experienced team is encouraging.
“NSA now calls for further progress with the Agriculture Bill, and with agreements with devolved nations to ensure we have connected and coherent agricultural and land management policies to ensure our success.
“We also expect to see increase high level engagement and investment in securing export markets and trade agreements that balance opportunities and the need to protect our industry.”
