The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Farm Service Agency (FSA) Administrator Juan M. Garcia this week reminded farmers, ranchers and other agricultural producers that they have until Aug. 1 to nominate eligible candidates to serve on local FSA county committees.
"The last day to file your nomination form is next week," Garcia said. "Please get involved this year and nominate the candidate of your choice, or nominate yourself to serve on your local county committee. This is your opportunity to have a say in how federal programs are delivered in your county."
