We are excited to announce Oregon FSA’s first annual photo contest to showcase your passion and commitment to agriculture. The photo contest begins today, June 4 and runs through August 8, 2018, and is open to all Oregon FSA employees, Oregon producers, farmers, and ranchers.
For our first photo contest, we’ve come up with four photo categories: Agriculture Landscape, People in Agriculture, A Rural Workday, and Agricultural Animals or Crops, and of course, all photos must represent and exemplify safe farming practices. We are looking for your recent photos taken in Oregon that best represent these categories. Our State Committee members will judge the photos during our August State Committee meeting. The top three finalist photos will be selected from each Oregon FSA county office, and one winner will then be selected from each county office.
For more information click on the contest flyer or contest article. Link to photo contest entry form and FSA-463 - Photograph and Testimonial Consent/Release Form.
Entries can be submitted to your local FSA Office or can be e-mailed to Susan.Riffel@or.usda.gov.

USDA has recently developed a new tool that helps identify the impacts that women have in Agriculture, by State, as well as Nationally. Infographics showing what percentage of women farm in each state and nationally are included in this new tool, as are links to blogs in which powerful stories of women in agriculture are featured. In addition, links are provided to the Women in Agriculture Mentoring Network, where women can connect with other women leaders in agriculture all across the country.

If you produce a specialty crop that is ineligible for crop insurance, we’ve got an improved program that can help protect against losses from weather and natural disasters.
The Non-Insured Crop Disaster Assistance program, or NAP, is now available, offering much more than in the past. Previously you were covered at 55 percent of the market price for losses exceeding 50 percent, but now you can cover 65 percent of your crop at 100 percent of the price.
For new, low-income or previously underserved farmers, there is free basic coverage, and higher coverage at discounted premiums.
