Farm Service Agency newsletter to be delivered electronically
U.S. Department of Agriculture Wilson County Farm Service Agency County Executive Director Stephen Svacina has announced that farmers, ranchers, and others in Wilson County now have a more efficient, timely option for receiving important Farm Service Agency program eligibility requirements, deadlines, and related information.
The Farm Service Agency “is now offering free online communications through our GovDelivery electronic news service,” Svacina said. “News will now be sent via email -- allowing you to receive immediate notification of program news that is pertinent to your agricultural operation,” he said.
Through the Farm Service Agency’s GovDelivery electronic news service, anyone can establish subscriber preferences by choosing to receive federal farm program information by topic, by state, and/or by county. Subscribers can select as many 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.
The Farm Service Agency in Wilson County will automatically subscribe farmers and ranchers to GovDelivery when they provide their email address to the Wilson County Farm Service Agency office.
Grass-roots organizations, agri-businesses, and others interested in receiving Farm Service Agency information through email can subscribe to GovDelivery online at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/subscribe. After you enter your email address, click on “+” next to “Updates for State and County.” Scroll down and click on “+” next to “Texas” and select the counties which you have an interest and click on “Submit” at the bottom of the page. Note that there are other options available in GovDelivery that will provide you national information by topic through your email.
GovDelivery is a free electronic news delivery service that ensures Wilson County farmers and ranchers remain informed of program changes, signups, and deadlines.
A small supply of printed newsletters will be available in the Wilson County Farm Service county office, located on U.S. 181 in Floresville, for those that don’t have email. For more information, call 830-393-3411.
Contact your local Farm Service Agency office if you have questions regarding FSA’s GovDelivery electronic news service.
