County Committee Election Results
Congratulations to Michael Boyum, he was re-elected to represent farmers from Arendahl, Rushford, Holt, Norway, Amherst, Preble, Canton and Newburg townships on the county committee. Michael was elected to his second consecutive 3-year term. The election results for Local Administrative Area 3 are:
Michael Boyum - elected to the county committee (COC),
Benjamin Rein- 1st alternate to COC,
Jonathan Pettit- 2nd alternate to COC
FSA appreciates all of the voters for taking the time to complete the election ballot. The county committee system works only because of your participation.
Enrollment for the 2010 Direct and Counter-cyclical Program (DCP) will continue through June 1, 2010. USDA urges producers to make use of the DCP automated website to sign up, or producers can visit any USDA Service Center to complete their 2010 DCP contract.
USDA computes DCP Program payments using base acres and payment yields established for each farm. Eligible producers receive direct payments at rates established by statute regardless of market prices. For 2010, eligible producers may request to receive advance direct payments based on 22 percent of the direct payment. USDA will issue advance direct payments beginning Dec. 1, 2009. Counter-cyclical payment rates vary depending on market prices. Counter-cyclical payments are issued only when the effective price for a commodity is below its target price. The effective price is the higher of the national average market price received during the 12-month marketing year for each covered commodity and the national average loan rate for a marketing assistance loan for the covered commodity.
