The Farm Service Agency’s committee election for the Manitowoc County townships of Cato, Franklin, Manitowoc, Manitowoc Rapids, Maple Grove and Rockland will be held this fall. The farmer-elected committee is your voice in USDA’s programs here in the county. Members of the committee work with area residents to maintain the local focus of many USDA programs, inform people of what’s available, and help producers understand how the programs work. If you think you can help, contact the Manitowoc County FSA Office at 920-683-5119, ext. 2.  It is important that all parts of the farming community have a voice.
