- July 15, 2013 - Acreage Reporting Deadline for all spring seeded 2013 Crops and CRP
Most programs enacted by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 expired in 2012 or were set to expire with 2012 crops. The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 (ATRA) extends authority under the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (the 2008 farm bill) for one year --to 2013--for selected programs administered by the Farm Service Agency (FSA). In general, the program provisions for 2013 remain the same as for 2012, with some exceptions noted below. Without ATRA, legislative authority for 2013 would have automatically reverted to the "permanent law" provisions of the Agricultural Adjustment Act of 1938 and the Agriculture Act of 1949, which provide for very high support levels.

FSA has a national website for producers to list information concerning the need for or the ability of hay.
I am honored to serve as the State Executive Director for USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) in Colorado. Our primary mission is to assist Colorado farmers and ranchers secure the greatest possible benefit from programs administered by FSA such as farm loans, commodity programs, disaster relief, conservations and other available resources.
The hard working women and men of our FSA county and multi-county offices and service centers are at the forefront of our efforts. They are the primary contact for all program participation and other related questions.
Colorado's diverse agriculture is the back bone of the rural economy and an important part of the economic recovery in our great state. I look forward to working, in cooperation with all the employees within FSA and the state committee, with all farmers and ranchers throughout Colorado. I invite you to contact me at FSA's Colorado State Office with any questions you may have about our programs or operations. Our website can also help you learn more about FSA programs and services.
