Wed, 11/29/2017 - 2:12pm
The 2017 Farm Service Agency County Committee Elections began on November 6, when ballots were mailed to eligible voters. The deadline to return the ballots of local FSA offices is December 4, 2017.
County committee members are an important component of the operations of FSA and provide a link between the agricultural community and USDA. Farmers and ranchers elected to county committees help deliver FSA programs at the local level, applying their knowledge and judgment to make decisions on commodity price support programs; conservation programs; incentive indemnity and disaster programs for some commodities; emergency programs and eligibility. FSA committees operate within official regulations designed to carry out federal laws.
