Pettis County farmer is new Missouri FSA director

Brent Hampy, a row-crop and cattle farmer from Pettis County, Mo., has been appointed as the new state executive director for USDA’s Farm Service Agency in Missouri. He joined the state’s FSA team Oct. 1, filling the vacancy left by the May appointment of Richard Fordyce of Bethany as administrator of the national FSA.

Hampy has farmed since 1987 in Smithton, Mo., and had been serving as Pettis County’s Eastern District Commissioner since 2012. He had also been a board member for the Missouri Farm Bureau since 2013. As part of the federal appointment, Hampy has stepped down from both positions.

His new duties will include overseeing FSA’s commodity and disaster relief programs for farmers, ranchers and agricultural partners.
