USDA Farm Service Agency County Committee Elections
Have you ever considered serving on your Farm Service Agency County Committee? Nominations will be open from June 15, 2121 through August 2, 2021. "County Committee members are farmers elected by their peers to serve as a direct link between the agricultural community and USDA. Farmers on the Committee help deliver Farm Service Agency farm programs at the local level, help decide the kind of programs their counties will offer, and work to make Farm Service Agency agricultural programs serve the needs of local producers."
You can nominate yourself or another farmer. The last day to file a FSA-669A County Committee nomination form is August 2, 2021 at your local Farm Service Agency office at the USDA Service Center. The elections will be held this fall by mail in ballots. If you would like more information contact your local Farm Service Agency office. I am sure the County Farm Service Agency Director would be pleased to hear from you! Also, The Minnesota Farm Service Agency will be hosting a webinar about the nomination process, elections and serving on the County Committee.
