I am honored to serve as the State Executive Director for the USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) in North Dakota and I welcome you to our state website. Our primary mission is to assist North Dakota's farmers and ranchers secure the greatest possible benefit from programs administered by FSA such as farm loans, commodity price support, disaster relief, conservation, and other available resources. The hard working men and women of North Dakota's 51 county offices are at the forefront of our efforts and they remain the primary contact for program participation and related questions.
North Dakota's diverse agricultural bounty feeds the entire world and I look forward to working with farmers and ranchers from throughout our great state on the issues and challenges ahead. I encourage you to contact me at FSA's North Dakota State Office with any questions you may have about our programs or operations.
If you believe that USDA improperly denied farm loan benefits to you for certain time periods between 1981 and 2000 because you are female, or because you are Hispanic, you may be eligible to apply for compensation.
