Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Teresa Lasseter said streamlining the agency will continue under the Obama administration, with fewer offices available to serve ranchers and farmers across the country. Lasseter said Texas, Georgia, Virginia, Nebraska and Kentucky had taken the "lead in streamlining FSA. There is more to be done across the country.
"Given the budget situation today, along with the changes and complexity of farm programs and needs for the future, we no longer have the luxury of having an FSA office in every county," Lasseter said during the recent Texas Commodity Symposium.
