SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – The federal Agriculture Department is closing Farm Service Agency offices in four South Dakota counties due to budget cuts.
The South Dakota offices will be closed in Harding, Jackson, Campbell and Jerauld counties. Farmers and ranchers can designate the most convenient neighboring county as the place they will do business in the future.
FSA offices that had one or two employees or were within 20 miles of another FSA office were candidates for closure; 125 offices are being closed across the country.
