Farm service agency elects committee

CORTLAND — The Trumbull County Farm Service Agency has selected Champion resident Russell Banks to represent the local administrative area. He took office this month.

Bristolville resident Eric Campbell will serve as the first alternate.

Trumbull County’s U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency Executive Director Dave Echols said the two men were named following county committee elections. Committee members help deliver programs at the county level and work to serve the needs of local producers.

Each FSA office is required to have a county committee made up of local farmers who are elected by other local farmers.
