Farm Bureau names director of livestock and resources policy
» November 14, 2005 «
A woman with a strong background in livestock and farming issues has become the new director of livestock, public lands and natural resources for the California Farm Bureau Federation. Elisa Noble of Sacramento joins the Farm Bureau National Affairs and Research Division.
She will represent Farm Bureau members before Congress and federal agencies, on subjects including conservation, endangered-species policies, public-lands and wilderness issues, and commodity matters affecting producers of cattle, sheep and timber.
"Elisa's knowledge of livestock and her diverse background in agricultural issues will be a strong asset for Farm Bureau members," California Farm Bureau President Bill Pauli said. "She will make sure Farm Bureau's positions are heard on topics such as animal identification rules, country-of-origin food labeling, and livestock grazing, timber harvesting and other public-lands issues."
Prior to assuming her current job, Noble served as the Farm Bureau's coordinator of rural health and safety. In that role, she worked with county Farm Bureaus and individual members on health, safety and rural crime-prevention matters affecting farmers and their employees, families and businesses.
A native of Yreka, Noble holds a master's degree in agricultural education and agricultural policy from Texas A&M University and a bachelor's degree from the University of California, Davis.
