Deadline for local FSA committee nominations Aug. 1 (07/25/2012)
Jim Hannula, Director for Trempealeau County Farm Service Agency today reminded farmers, ranchers and other agricultural producers that they have until August 1, 2012, to nominate eligible candidates to serve on local FSA county committees.

“County committees are important to Wisconsin because they assist local farmers and ranchers,” said Hannula. “I especially encourage beginning farmers to get involved by nominating eligible candidates to serve on county committees.”

To be eligible to serve on an FSA county committee, a person must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and reside in the local administrative area in which the person is a candidate.

Producers may also nominate themselves, and organizations representing minority and women may also nominate candidates. To become a nominee, eligible individuals must sign form FSA-669A. The form and other valuable information about FSA county committee elections are available online at: www.fsa.usda.gov. Nomination forms for the 2013 election must be postmarked or received in the local USDA Service Center by close of business on August 1, 2012.

FSA county committee members make decisions on disaster and conservation programs, emergency programs, commodity price support loan programs and other important agricultural issues. Members serve three-year terms. Nationwide, there are more than 7,800 farmers and ranchers serving on FSA county committees. Committees consist of three to five members who are elected by eligible local producers.

Newly elected committee members and alternates take office in January, 2013.

Find FSA news releases on the agency’s Web site www.fsa.usda.gov.

USDA is an equal opportunity provider and employer.
