Farmers named to California, Arizona FSA committees

USDA names farmers to various state Farm Service Agency committees

U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue recently appointed a slate of farmers and ranchers to the Arizona and California state Farm Service Agency committees. Those committee members are responsible for carrying out FSA farm programs.

“The State Committees will help to ensure USDA is providing our farmers, ranchers, foresters, and agricultural producers with the best customer service,” Secretary Perdue said. “They serve as a liaison between USDA and the producers in each state across the nation by keeping them informed and hearing their appeals and complaints. The committees are made up mostly of active farmers and ranchers, representing their peers and ensuring USDA’s programs are supporting the American harvest.”

Arizona appointees to the FSA State Committee are:

  • Committee Chair Pamela Griffin, Globe, cattle
  • Andy Grosetta, Prescott, cattle
  • Steven Killian, Phoenix, cattle, cotton, alfalfa, wheat, and sweet grazer
  • David Lamoreaux, Gilbert, alfalfa, cattle, quarter horses
  • Lyndon Smith, Gilbert, president & co-owner of Bio Huma Netics, Inc.  He specializes in soil fertility, organic acids, and crop nutrition.

California appointees to the FSA State Committee are:

  • Committee Chair Greg Wegis, Buttonwillow/Bakersfield, almonds, pistachios, carrots, tomatoes, grapes, wheat, corn, alfalfa, dates
  • Blake Alexandre, Crescent City, dairy
  • Thomas J. Butler, Woodland, rice, almonds
  • Joe Egan, Susanville, rancher
