Written by Bill Harmon /Farm Service Agency Wednesday, 18 July 2007 10:36As part of the 2007 National Compliance Review, the Farm Service Agency is requiring local FSA county offices to conduct compliance reviews and spot checks of certain producers selected by the national office through a statistical sampling method.

Hannah Perry reported on the council meeting. Derek Kruger reported that his committee had decided to have a 4-H booth at Threshing...
