LacefieldLOUISVILLE, KY – A Christian County resident has been appointed to serve as the Kentucky Farm Service Agency Executive Director.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader McConnell announced today that President Donald Trump assigned the USDA appointment to Brian Lacefield.

“I congratulate Brian Lacefield, of Hopkinsville, on his appointment to serve as the executive director of the Kentucky Farm Service Agency,” McConnell said in a statement. “Responsible for more than $330 million of payments and loans to Kentucky farmers last year, the FSA is a vital resource for the commonwealth’s agricultural community. With his wealth of experience working in agriculture, Brian is ready to serve and support Kentucky’s farmers in his new role. I commend President Trump for selecting another qualified Kentuckian to serve in the Administration.”

Trump also appointed Hilda Legg of Pulaski County as State Director for the USDA office of Rural Development in Kentucky.
