The Coalition to Support Iowa's Farmers (CSIF) was established in 2004 by farmers for farmers to help those that raise livestock successfully and responsibly manage changes to their livestock farms.  CSIF does this by helping farmers navigate the maze of state and federal regulations, providing a building site analysis, consulting on safeguarding the environment and enhancing neighbor relations.
