USDA Farm Service Agency offices are moving towards a paperless operation, and farmers and ranchers in Minnesota now have a more efficient, timely option for receiving important FSA program eligibility requirements, deadlines and related information. Producers are asked to enroll in the new GovDelivery system which will provide agency news releases, newsletters and program reminders electronically directly to your inbox.
GovDelivery is a one-stop shop for the most up-to-date USDA program information. 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.
FSA, like many other federal agencies, is trying to work smarter and be more efficient. Moving to electronic notifications via email will help conserve resources and save taxpayer dollars.
County committee ballots will continue to be mailed to all eligible producers.
To begin using GovDelivery, subscribe online at www.fsa.usda.gov/subscribe or contact your local office for subscription assistance.
