Myron Tranel was elected Local Administrative Area 3 County Farm Service Agency Committee member.
Area 3 represents the Grant County towns of South Lancaster, Ellenboro, Lima, Harrison, Platteville, Paris, Smelser, Jamestown and Hazel Green.
Tranel began his first three-year term as part of the Grant County FSA Committee Jan. 1.
The local FSA County Committee administers farm programs at the local level. These farmers assist in deciding the kind of programs their counties will have and how they are run. Committees make decisions on crop yields, conservation programs, disaster programs when enacted by Congress, general program eligibility, and appeals from producers who have received notice of adverse decisions.
“The Grant County FSA Office would like to thank and acknowledge Marvin Kettler for his nine years of service on the Grant County FSA Committee,” said the FSA’s Jared Reuter. “Because of Marvin’s dedication to the agricultural community the Grant County FSA office has been able to provide financial assistance to the producers throughout Grant County.”
