Lubbock County USDA Farm Service Agency Director Cary Hanlin reminds farmers and ranchers to nominate candidates to serve on their local FSA County committee by the August 1, 2012 deadline.

Elected county committee members serve a three-year term and are responsible for making decisions on FSA disaster, conservation, commodity, and price support programs, as well as other important federal farm program issues.

County committee members are a valuable asset because they are local producers who participate in FSA programs and have direct connection to farmers and ranchers in the community,” Hanlin said. “I would like to see a high level of participation in this year’s nomination election process,” he said.

Producers can nominate themselves or others as candidates and organizations that represent minority and women farmers and ranchers may also nominate candidates.

County committees are made up of three to five members elected by local producers.

All newly elected officials and alternates will take office January 1, 2013.
