Reagan and Chanda Moseley of Early recently met with U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway at his office on Capitol Hill. The Moseleys were in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 10, as part of the Young Leaders Program, a weeklong event sponsored by the Tenth District Farm Credit Council.

The Young Leaders Program is designed to give young Farm Credit stockholders an overview of the Farm Credit System and an opportunity to interact with System leaders and decision-makers in Washington, D.C.

Each lending co-op in the district was invited to select a participant for the program.

“We put this program together to help support our young stockholders and the important role they play in the agriculture industry and their rural communities,” said Jimmy Dodson, chairman of the Tenth District Farm Credit Council.

“We hope this event not only expressed our appreciation to them, but also gave them an inside look at the Farm Credit System, how their loans are funded and how their voices can be heard in Washington.”

The trip included meetings with legislators, officials of the Farm Credit Council and congressional leaders in Washington, D.C.

The group also traveled to Newark, N.J., for a briefing at the Federal Farm Credit Banks Funding Corporation and spent an afternoon in New York City touring the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Moseley is a stockholder of Central Texas Farm Credit, one of 20 rural financing cooperatives that make up the district.

He has a cattle operation and farms wheat and oats.

He also is employed full-time as the warehouse manager at Nelson Wholesale Services Inc. in Brownwood. Moseley’s wife, Chandra, is an Extension agent in Brown County.

The Tenth District Farm Credit Council is the trade association of the Tenth Farm Credit District and represents the district’s legislative and regulatory interests.
