FEDERAL AGENCY SPOTLIGHT

USDA’s Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) has a long, rich tradition of providing excellent programs and ser¬vices to agricultural producers and industry. Our work has expanded to involve many segments of agriculture, which greatly increases the number of individuals and organizations we serve.

Secretary of Agriculture Henry Wallace consolidated several bureaus and programs in 1939 to create a single agency to carry out a comprehensive mission. The new Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) was charged with the facilitation of the efficient and fair marketing of American agri¬cultural products, including food, fiber, and specialty crops. Today, AMS continues to administer programs that facilitate market¬ing and provide the agriculture industry with valuable services that help ensure the quality and availability of wholesome food for consumers throughout the United States and the world. AMS works to support rural economies, the agricultural industry, and local ag¬riculture through several organi¬zations. From individual farmers to international businesses, the AMS mission supports American agriculture and helps to ensure that the U.S. remains competitive in the global marketplace.

AMS supports agriculture through a variety of programs and organizations, which include the Office of the Administrator and staffs; Cotton and Tobacco Pro¬gram; Dairy Program; Fruit and Vegetable Program; Livestock, Poultry and Seed Program; Na¬tional Organic Program; Science and Technology Program; Trans¬portation and Marketing Program; Commodity Procurement staff; Compliance and Analysis Pro¬gram; and, Information Technolo¬gy Service.

AMS programs and activities provide the basic infrastructure to improve market competitive-ness to benefit consumers and producers of American agricul¬ture. American agriculture is incredibly diverse and includes urban and rural operations of every size. It supports 1 in 12 U.S. jobs and provides safe, affordable food to consumers across the globe. The last four years represent the strongest in U.S. history, with U.S. agricul¬tural product exports exceeding $478 billion.

Economic vitality and quality of life in rural America and the U.S. economy at large depend on a competitive, effi¬cient, and productive agricultural system. Agricultural producers encompass farmers, growers, ranchers, and small business owners who support rural com¬munities in a challenging global, technologically advanced, and competitive business environ¬ment. In an era of market con¬solidation and intense competi¬tion, these producers rely on fair and open access to markets and information that AMS provides.

The AMS workforce is comprised of approximately 4,000 employ¬ees and is supplemented by Federal-State employees work¬ing under cooperative agree¬ments. The workforce includes marketing specialists, commodity graders, economists, market news re¬porters, scientists, and analysts who support the marketing of American agricultural products and work in industry-specific processing plants, terminal and shipping point markets, production facilities, and office environments.

JOIN AMERICA'S PREPAREATHON!

http://prepare.govdelivery.com/

CONTACTS | cari.roberts@icfi.com | Daniel.Nyquist@fema.dhs.gov

America's PrepareAthon! is a grassroots campaign for action to increase community preparedness and resilience.  To move people to action, President Obama, through Presidential Policy Directive (PPD-8 | http://www.dhs.gov/presidential-policy-directive-8-national-preparedness), has directed all federal agencies to work with their stakeholders across the country to “coordinate a comprehensive campaign to build and sustain national preparedness …”

Over the next few weeks, we will be publishing steps that your agency can take to participate with others nationwide as we work together to create a more prepared union. 

Conduct your agency’s existing drills or exercises during the month of September, National Preparedness Month (http://www.ready.gov/september)

a)      TAKE ACTION | http://prepare.govdelivery.com/take-action/activities

Ideally adjust your schedule for drills to fall on September 30th, National PrepareAthon! Day - to coincide with thousands of other preparedness actions taken nationwide that day.  But don’t let that hinder you – Any Action, Any Day counts.

b)      BE COUNTED | http://prepare.govdelivery.com/be-counted

Register your activity to be counted as part of America’s PrepareAthon!, to show up on the national map, and to have your participation reported to the White House.

c)      SPREAD THE WORD | http://prepare.govdelivery.com/spread-the-word

Posters, web icons, email banners, logos, and certificates of participation are available and easily customizable to help you promote your event within your agency.

PETS OF THE WEEK

Tiny Tim Crush | Chi/Doxie Mix | Male | 3 months old

Maggie | Boxer/Bulldog Mix | Female | 2 years old
MY FAIRY DAWG MOTHER RESCUE | 720 939 7017 | http://www.dogrescuecolorado.org/

Maggie was found on the streets of Houston, with a heavy collar around her neck. There were no tags or microchip indicating that she belonged to someone, but the collar on around her neck told another story. As far as we can tell someone had Maggie in their possession, but for how long, we'll never know, and it is clear she wasn't treated well. When found, she was severely emaciated and her fur was gone. The City Shelter in Houston listed her as "pre-euth", meaning she was slated to die, because after all, who would want a starved, hairless dog that was on death's door!?It was by chance that the Fairy Dawg Mother saw her picture, and the spark in her eyes called out for a chance. We loved her the moment we saw her, and worked hard with several agencies to bring Miss Maggie from Houston to Denver. Maggie has spent the last few months recuperating at one of our foster homes. She's gained weight, started growing her coat back, and she's strong enough to play now. During this time we have learned that she is a gentle soul, with a heart of gold for her people.

Link | Dobi/Lab Mix | Male | 1.5 years old
MY FAIRY DAWG MOTHER RESCUE | 720 939 7017 | http://www.dogrescuecolorado.org/

Link is a 1.5 years old, full bred Doberman Pincher. He was found living behind a grocery store in rural Oklahoma in the dead of winter. Link is very puppy like and still likes to roll and romp around. He plays well with others. Link is full bred, however he is small in size for being male and his ears and tail are not cropped. Link is incredibly sweet and loving. He would do well in a home with an older dawg that can show him the ropes and provide companionship while his people are away. He would benefit from having a backyard to play in and a family that included him in all facets of their lives. Link's adoption fee includes all vaccinations, neuter, life time enrollment on his microchip, and one group training session with our resident dawg trainer. Link is currently being fostered in Aurora, Colorado. You have to meet this sweet guy to really appreciate what an incredible creature he is!
