USDA Farm Service Agency?
[Return to Topics]

What is it?

I got a ballot in the mail from the USDA so I can elect my county committee for the Farm Service Agency. Hate to sound dumb, but I've never heard of it. What's it do? Is this worth my time to get smart on and 37 cent stamp to mail?

thanks,
Tom A

Cast your ballot! The FSA is there for you the farmer. That County Committee has a lotta clout with your State politicians. My wife has been a CED with FSA for well over 20 years and works her tail off for the farmers.

Around here that board takes care of the CRP
stuff and other ag related matters ie. soil
mapping, weed control etc. etc. If you do any
farmin' it's worth your time voting, those folks
will make decisions that affect you ... of course
I vote whenever I have a chance to have my
say in a matter

clipper is right the Fsa does work it's butt off for us, they gotta deal with all the irate farmers that have to deal with the programs and different things the government makes us do. the FSA takes the brunt of all that.
