Do you or anyone you know wish to serve at the USDA’s Farm Service Agency? Farmers, ranchers and agricultural producers have until August 3 to nominate any eligible candidates to local FSA county committees.
“I encourage all producers to get involved by nominating candidates to serve on county committees,” Jonathan Coppess, administrator of the FSA said. “FSA county committees are essential to the delivery of federal programs.”
These committees work with local farmers to help make decisions on commodity price support loans, conservation programs and disaster programs. They also work closely with directors to make extensive decisions.
The complete list of requirements are available at the FSA’s website.
You can nominate yourself or others, but remember all entries must be postmarked by August 3.
Once the ballads are complete, voters will receive them by November 6 and will have until December 7 to vote. New members will take office January 1, 2010.
