Our primary mission at FSA is to help Missouri farmers and ranchers secure the greatest possible benefit from programs such as farm loans, commodity price support, disaster relief, conservation, food aid or other available resources.
FSA employees are dedicated to improving the economic stability of Missouri agriculture one family at a time, and insuring that rural Missouri remains a great place to raise the next generation of Missourians.
The hard working men and women of Missouri’s FSA county offices are at the forefront of our efforts and remain the primary contact for program participation. We encourage you to speak with the staff at your local office on how we can be of service. Our user friendly web site can help you learn more about FSA programs and services and help you locate your local FSA Service Center.

Livestock Producers – Have You Signed Up for the Livestock Forage Disaster Program?
If you owned grazing livestock in 2012, you may be eligible for the Livestock Forage Disaster Program (LFP). The 2014 Farm Bill authorized LFP and FSA is now accepting applications. LFP provides compensation to eligible livestock producers who have suffered grazing losses.
Every county in Missouri was affected by a qualifying drought event in 2012 & some counties were also qualified for 2011 and 2013.
Eligible livestock include beef and dairy cattle, sheep, goats, equine, swine, poultry, buffalo, beefalo, alpacas, emus, llamas, reindeer, deer & elk. Claimed livestock must be for commercial purposes in a farming operation.
If you have not done so already, contact your local FSA county office for more information or to schedule an appointment as soon as possible.
