FSA nominations accepted

Agriculture Secretary
Tom Vilsack announced today
that the nomination period
for local Farm Service
Agency (FSA) county committees
began on Monday,
June 17.
“I encourage all eligible
farmers and ranchers to
participate in this year’s
county committee elections
by nominating candidates
by the August 1 deadline,”
said Vilsack. “County committees
are a vital link between
the farm community
and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture and provide an
opportunity to farmers and
ranchers for their opinions
and ideas to be heard.
“We have been seeing an
increase in the number of
nominations of women and
minority candidates and I
hope that trend continues.”
