(Lincoln, NE) – February 10, 2014 – USDA Nebraska Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director, Dan Steinkruger, encourages farmers, ranchers, and landowners to sign up for our free online news service, GovDelivery. GovDelivery is a more efficient, timely option for receiving important USDA Farm Service Agency program information. This service is the primary means FSA uses to distribute timely information on new Farm Bill programs.

“GovDelivery allows FSA to directly email farmers, ranchers, and landowners farm program deadlines and updates,” said Steinkruger. FSA has been utilizing GovDelivery since December of 2011 to provide information to customers.

Steinkruger noted, “We used to mail out a paper monthly newsletter on programs. With the cost of print and mail, we can no longer afford the luxury. We email a simple monthly newsletter that provides a summary of our program opportunities, deadlines and other critical information. We keep the newsletters short and sweet.”

Through FSA’s GovDelivery electronic news service, producers can establish subscriber preferences by choosing to receive federal farm program information by topic, by state and/or by county. Producers can select as many subscriber options as they want, which allows producers who farm in multiple counties or across state lines to receive updates from each county in which they operate or have an interest.

To begin using GovDelivery, subscribe online at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/subscribe or contact your local FSA office for subscription assistance.
