Farm Credit in Mount Vernon Supports County Extension

The Farm Credit Illinois Mt. Vernon regional office recently awarded $500 to the Jefferson County University of Illinois Extension, $725 to the White County University of Illinois Extension, and $250 to the Perry County University of Illinois Extension.

In 2017, FCI invested more than $270,000 in youth, community, and ag literacy initiatives throughout its 60-county territory. The Mt. Vernon regional office annually supports Extension initiatives which further agricultural and youth development in rural communities.

The funds gifted to White County will provide new gutters for the 4-H Livestock Barn on the fairgrounds, increasing the lifespan of the building and allowing 4-H members to continue showing annually.
