Press Release from USDA Press
U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue recently announced a slate of Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Committee appointees. State committees are selected by the Secretary, serve at the pleasure of the Secretary, and are responsible for carrying out FSA’s farm programs within delegated authorities.
“The State Committees will help to ensure USDA is providing our farmers, ranchers, foresters, and agricultural producers with the best customer service,” Secretary Perdue said. “They serve as a liaison between USDA and the producers in each state across the nation by keeping them informed and hearing their appeals and complaints. The committees are made up mostly of active farmers and ranchers, representing their peers and ensuring USDA’s programs are supporting the American harvest.”
Among Missouri’s appointmees on the state committee is Julie Hurst of Tarkio, named the Missouri Committee Chair. Other Missourians on the committee include: Marc Allison – Dade County; Cindy Schroeder – Saline County; Will Spargo – Ripley County; and Barbara Wilson – Audrain.
State committees are appointed for a one year term which began on January 1, 2018.
