The livestock industry in Iowa is not only important to the economy as a whole, but is also an important customer for corn farmers. In fact, many corn farmers are also livestock producers. Iowa Corn is a major contributor to the Coalition to Support Iowa's farmers.
The 2011 "Farming for the Future conference: A Vision for Your Family's Farm" was held Friday, September 9 at the Iowa State Center’s Scheman Building in Ames. It featured several topics including a livestock, crop and feed outlook, as well as a rules and regulations update. There were panels of agriculture finance experts and young farmers who have used various strategies to return to the farm.
Due to the level of interest in bringing a young person back to the farm, video and powerpoint slides from the various sessions are available on CSIF's website. You can get to their page by clicking here
