To Wyoming Citizens: SED Lois Van MARK

Welcome to the Wyoming State FSA Website. 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.

As State Executive Director, I am excited about planning, organizing, and administering FSA programs in ways that make a real difference in the lives of our ranchers and farmers. My goal is to provide the very best customer service possible and to truly connect with agricultural producers statewide.

The hard working men and women of our 17 FSA county offices are at the forefront of our efforts and remains the primary contact for program participation. We encourage you to speak with the staff at your local office on how we can be of service. Our website can help you learn more about FSA programs and services and help you locate your local FSA service center.

Thank you for your interest!
