U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced that Cooperative Extension System Assistant Director and Department Head Bonnie Burr was appointed to the Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Committee for Connecticut. Burr will be the committee chair and serve with four other individuals for one year, which began January 1, 2018. She was featured in a recent Willimantic Chronicle article.
“The State Committees will help to ensure USDA (United States Department of Agriculture) is providing our farmers, ranchers, foresters, and agricultural producers with the best customer service. They serve as a liaison between USDA and the producers in each state across the nation by keeping them informed and hearing their appeals and complaints,” Perdue said.
