Area farmers have elected Norma Babbitt of Overbrook to the Douglas County Agriculture Stabilization and Conservation Service committee.
Ballots from the election were counted this week, Brian Morray, ASCS director, said.
Glenn Neis, Wellsville, was elected first alternate and Bill Leslie, Lecompton, was elected second alternate. Babbitt replaces Carl Spray, whose term ends Dec. 31. She will serve a two-year term starting Jan. 1.
Current committee members are Norman Leary, Lawrence, and Gilbert Gilges, Worden.
The committee oversees the administration of federal farm programs in the county to make sure they're handled properly through ASCS, Morray said.
