BOISE — The Trump administration has appointed Evan Frasure as state executive director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency in Idaho.
While in the Idaho legislature, Frasure was the Senate transportation chairman where he received recognition as one of the top 100 most influential Idahoans for multiple years in a row. He was also a Bannock County commissioner, has owned several small businesses, and was the executive director for a large international marketing company.
The FSA serves farmers, ranchers and agricultural partners through the delivery of efficient agricultural programs. The agency offers farmers a safety net through farm commodity and disaster programs. The FSA provides credit to agricultural producers who are unable to receive private commercial credit and continues to help farmers conserve natural resources.
