EPHRAIM, UT, Nov. 5, 2013 – The Service Center for the United States Department of Agriculture recently moved from its location on Main Street in Manti to the second floor of the Ephraim City Building at 5 South Main Street in Ephraim.  The three USDA agencies who occupy the office are the Farm Service Agency (FSA), the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and Rural Development (RD). Services to farmers, ranchers, and other community customers will remain the same, as will the area they serve. A public open house was held on Monday, November 4.

Agency heads, Art Douglas, state executive director of the FSA; Dave Brown, state conservationist for NRCS; and Dave Conine, state director of RD, said in a joint statement that “the move was initiated to improve program delivery, reduce leasing and administrative costs, and gain efficiencies without compromising service to our customers and the communities we serve.”
