Wilson County U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Executive Director Stephen Svacina announced Jan. 9 that Eunice Yosko of McCoy was elected to represent local administrative area No. 1 and Jerry Pape of Poth will serve as the first alternate.
Elected county committee members serve a three-year term and are responsible for making decisions on Farm Service Agency 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 [Farm Service Agency] programs themselves and have a direct connection to farmers and ranchers in the community,” Svacina said. “All recently elected county committee members and alternates took office on January 1, 2012, and joined the existing committee,” he said.
