Nominations are now being accepted for farmers and ranchers to serve on local USDA Farm Service Agency county committees. The committees make important decisions about how federal farm programs are administered locally.

All nomination forms for the 2024 election must be postmarked or received in the local FSA office by August 1.
Elections for committee members will occur in certain Local Administrative Areas says Farm Service Agency Administrator Zach Ducheneaux.

He says producers may be nominated for candidacy if they participate or cooperate in a USDA program and reside in the LAA that is up for election this year.

Nationwide, over 7,700 ag community members serve on their county committees.
