USDA Farm Service Agency
State Executive Director
Farm Service Agency County Committee Elections Launched June 14
The nomination period for USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) County Committees runs June 14 through Aug. 1, 2019, and elections will take place starting in November.
County committees are unique to FSA and serve as a direct link between agricultural communities across the country and USDA. Committees make important decisions about how federal farm programs are administered locally. Their input is vital on how FSA carries out disaster programs, as well as conservation, commodity and price support programs, county office employment and other agricultural issues.
Throughout the nomination period, we’ll introduce you to county committee members from around the nation. To see their stories and to learn more on FSA county committees, visit fsa.usda.gov/elections.
FSA's national website for producers to list need or availability of hay.
Producers with either need or availability of hay can also call the Texas Department of Agriculture Hay and Grazing Hotline at 1-877-429-1998, or visit their website at http://www.gotexan.org/HayhotlineHome.aspx.
At FSA, our mission is to do right and feed everyone.
Texas plays a vital role in United States agriculture. We lead the nation in the number of farms, and produce the most cotton, wool, and mohair in America.
The men and women of FSA work to ensure Texas farmers, ranchers, and landowners have access to all technical assistance, funding, and programs FSA has to offer. FSA serves all 254 Texas counties through a network of 173 county offices. The state office headquarters is located in College Station.
Since the implementation of the 2014 Farm Bill, FSA has invested an average of $1 billion each year into the stability of our state’s agricultural system.
We are committed to providing all available FSA programs throughout the state, including low-interest loans, commodity price support, disaster assistance, and conservation incentives. FSA programs are designed to provide an important safety net for farmers and ranchers during times of economic uncertainty, disaster, and emergency.
FSA is eager to assist all eligible Texas producers' agriculture endeavors. We encourage new customers, including beginning or underserved farmers and ranchers, to review resources available through FSA. We also welcome veterans, many of whom return home to rural communities, to consider agriculture as an option for their next career. We also support the growing group of women farmers who add tremendous value to the agriculture industry.
FSA directly impacts the lives of farmers and ranchers every day. We will continue to assist producers to ensure a safe, affordable, abundant, and nutritious food supply for all consumers.
