Presents are opened, exhausting family gatherings are done and yummy Christmas leftovers (cookies, ham, and homemade goodies) are in the kitchen waiting for you. As you sit there relishing that Christmas is finally over and you are playing with (or learning about) your new electronic toys (iPhone, iPad, or Kindle) and planning your New Year’s resolutions, consider using those new electronic devices to stay in touch with USDA.
The USDA Farm Service Agency offices are moving toward a paperless operation. Producers are asked to enroll in the new GovDelivery system which will provide notices, newsletters and electronic reminders instead of a hard copy through the mail.
FSA, like many other organizations, 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.
Producers can subscribe to receive free e-mail updates by going to http://www.fsa.usda.gov/subscribe.

So sit back and relax. Christmas is over, the New Year will be upon is in a few more days, and you can keep in touch with FSA from the comfort of your toasty home.
That’s all for now.
