Trump Administration Appoints Craig McCain to Continue to Serve as State Executive Director for USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Louisiana

(Alexandria, La.) - Nov.  14, 2017- The Trump Administration recently appointed Craig McCain to continue to serve as the State Executive Director (SED) for the USDA Louisiana Farm Service Agency (FSA).

McCain has over 30 years of service with FSA, serving as a County Executive Director, District Director and most recently as SED. Over the course of his career, he has served on numerous task forces responsible for writing FSA policy and developing software applications. McCain has also participated in the development and presentation of several national and state trainings.

The Farm Service Agency serves farmers, ranchers and agricultural partners through the delivery of effective, efficient agricultural programs. The agency offers farmers a strong safety net through the administration of farm commodity and disaster programs. FSA continues to conserve natural resources and also provides credit to agricultural producers who are unable to receive private, commercial credit, including special emphasis on beginning, underserved and women farmers and ranchers.

Under the direction of Secretary Sonny Perdue, the USDA will always be facts-based and data-driven, with a decision-making mindset that is customer-focused. Secretary Perdue leads the USDA with four guiding principles: to maximize the ability of American agriculture to create jobs, sell foods and fiber, and feed and clothe the world; to prioritize customer service for the taxpayers; to ensure that our food supply is safe and secure; and to maintain good stewardship of the natural resources that provide us with our miraculous bounty. And understanding that we live in a global economy where trade is of top importance, Secretary Perdue has pledged to be an unapologetic advocate for American agriculture.

As SED, McCain will continue to use his leadership experience to oversee FSA programs in a customer-focused manner to ensure a safe, affordable, abundant and nutritious food supply for consumers.

USDA is an equal opportunity provider, employer and lender.
