Nominations due for local FSA county committees

Jack Salava, Acting State Executive Director of USDA's Farm Service Agency in Kansas, reminded farmers, ranchers and other agricultural producers that they have until Aug. 3, 2009, to nominate eligible candidates to serve on local FSA county committees.

"I encourage all producers to get involved by nominating candidates to serve on county committees," Salava said. "FSA county committees are essential to the delivery of federal programs. We are getting close to the deadline and we need more participation. I also urge producers to help us build a strong future for our next generation of agricultural businesses and communities by nominating beginning farmers and ranchers, minorities and women."

FSA county committees help local farmers through their decisions on commodity price support loans, conservation programs and disaster programs, and by working closely with county executive directors.

To be eligible to hold office as a county committee member, people must participate or cooperate in a program administered by FSA, be eligible to vote in a county committee election and live in the local administrative area where they are running. A complete list of eligibility requirements, more information and nomination forms are available at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/elections.

People can nominate themselves or others. FSA encourages beginning farmers and ranchers, as well as minorities and women, to nominate themselves.
