Kansas Farm Service Agency is accepting nominations for local FSA county committees, now through August first. County committees remain a vital link between the farm community and USDA, and provide an opportunity for farmers and ranchers opinions and ideas to be heard. To be eligible, candidates must participate, or cooperate in, a program administered by FSA be eligible to vote in a county committee election, and reside in a local administrative area in which the person is a candidate. Farmers and ranchers may nominate themselves or others. Anyone interested is encouraged to contact the local Farm Service Agency office.
