FSA Committee nominations sought
Nominations for the Perkins County FSA Committee started being taken on June 15. The USDA encourages America’s farmers and ranchers to consider running for this committee.
Committee members play a critical role in the day-to-day operations of FSA, giving producers a voice on federal farm program implementation. Producers can nominate themselves or others. To be eligible to serve on an FSA county committee, producers must participate or cooperate in an FSA program and reside in the area where the election is being held. This year, nominations and elections for Perkins County will be held in local administrative area 3, which includes the eastern portion of the county. All nomination forms for the 2018 election must be postmarked or received in the local FSA office by Aug. 1st. Visit farmers.gov for more information.
