WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – August 24, 2017 – The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF) announces the launch of its new newsletter - the Iowa Livestock Insider. The monthly online publication was designed to replace the organizations’ former E-TEAM! Newsletter to provide farmers with the latest information on Iowa’s livestock industry using effective and user-friendly navigation. 

“Since 2004, the Coalition has served over 3,900 Iowa farm families by providing the expertise and resources they need to grow successfully and responsibly,” says CSIF executive director, Brian Waddingham. “The introduction of the rebranded newsletter is a step forward in communicating our services to Iowa farmers and sharing timely tips and tools they can implement on their livestock farms.”

The Iowa Livestock Insider will focus on leading livestock trends and feature content about the Coalition’s Green Farmstead Partner Program and the Wergin Good Farm Neighbor Award. The newsletter will also include a calendar of upcoming events with links to the Coalition’s website and registration pages.

“In many ways the newsletter is an extension of the free and confidential assistance we provide to the farm families we work with,” said Waddingham. “The new design not only highlights best management practices, but showcases some of our success stories in a more visually appealing manner.”

Farmers and industry partners interested in signing up for the Iowa Livestock Insider may subscribe by sending an email to info@supportfarmers.com with their name and email address.

CSIF is a non-profit organization that assists livestock farmers who want help interpreting rules and regulations, guidance on good site locations for barns, counsel on enhancing neighbor relations and tips on how to protect the environment at no cost.
