The Morgan County Farm Service Agency office in Versailles is closing. The closure is one of three in Missouri, announced by Secretary of Agriculture Thomas A. Vilsack. The USDA says shutdown of the Versailles office will begin immediately. After the required notifications have been provided to producers, employees and office landlords, a closure date will be decided and announced. Operations will be consolidated with FSA’s Moniteau County office.
“FSA places the utmost priority on ensuring that our services to producers remain strong as this consolidation process begins,” said FSA Administrator, Bruce Nelson. The agency will provide farmers and ranchers affected by closures an opportunity to choose the most convenient neighboring county office with which to conduct their future business with the agency. In addition, all employees in a closing office will be provided an opportunity to continue their work with FSA.
