About Farm Compliance Services
In 2008, FCS hired David Weber, previously a CAFO farm regulator in Vermont, to manage and direct FCS. David set up shop in Grand Rapids and continues to provide services to a variety of farm clients throughout Michigan. At the end of 2014, David Weber purchased FCS from Jacques & Charles Nault. Jacques and his brother Charles are the owners of Logiag, a Quebec agronomic consulting company serving farmers throughout Canada. FCS was originally founded in 1999 by CCA Jacques Nault, who at the time had over 20 years of experience as an agronomist in Quebec, CA. He began FCS to service clients in northern New York state and Vermont, where farmers had heard of his expertise as a crop consultant.
With the 2014-2015 transition in ownership, FCS began a new chapter in our drive to provide improved Nutrient Management and farm analytical services.Our relationship with the Nault's continues as we believe FCS can only be stronger with relationships with planners and farmers throughout the US and Canada.
Our focus at FCS is to offer personalized farm consulting services. All of FCS customers receive our attention and dedication in helping reach long-term farm growth goals. Our priority is your farms long-term economic vitality, the long-term environmental health of your farm land, and the efficiencies that must be achieved to continue farming long into the future.
At FCS we do not sell or advertise particular fertilizer, seeds, or chemicals brands or products. We provide data based agronomic and manure management advise using each states approved agronomic guidelines. If you don't need it, we don't recommend it, because we have no interest in recommending inputs the farms simply does not need.
Our firm is committed to offering efficient, high-quality compliance services that are customized to your farm requirements, and we do so at an affordable price.
To help our CAFO and NRCS-CNMP clients keep up with annual program requirements, we partner with Logiag to provide a free record keeping software, compatible for any grid sampling or other precision agriculture data your farm currently is using. In recent years we have helped clients navigate and find value in the more powerful software tools that can integrated precision ag data and equipment across various geo-spacial references. There is no way of doing long-term nutrient planning without good records, and having a simple and easy record keeping system is the only way to have the records needed for the decision making process.
FCS visits the farm as many times as it takes to understand your farm, how you operate, and what you need to be economically sustainable long into the future. In some areas FCS works through established firms in the local community such as seed, fertilizer or herbicide dealers, to help bridge the gaps that can exist between field data, software, farms purchased inputs, yield data and decision making.
Since its foundation, farmers have placed their confidence in FCS for the preparation of their CNMP, NMP, and CAFO permits. Our farms trust our experience and science based recommendations concerning fertilizers, crop rotation, tillage, and manure management.
