Accu-Steel Covered Buildings Invests in CSIF

05-21-2013 in News Release

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – May 21, 2013  Accu-Steel covered buildings, a leading manufacturer of fabric-covered buildings, affirms its support of Iowa agriculture through an investment in the Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF).

Brian Waddingham, executive director of the Coalition, says the Templeton, Iowa-based firm has stepped forward with a $3,000 investment.  “We’re extremely grateful for Accu-Steels’ contribution to the Coalition and appreciate their support of Iowa agriculture,” he says.

Jason Owen, president of Accu-Steel, said the family-owned business is proud to serve Iowa’s livestock farmers today and into the future.  “Iowa’s cattle industry is an important part of the state and local economy and Accu-Steel is committed to helping the industry continue to grow,” said Owen.  “Working with the Coalition we can continue to make Iowa’s cattle industry more competitive which could lead to bringing more young people back to the family farm.”

Accu-Steel covered buildings are designed to maintain a consistent environment, regardless of wind direction or outside elements which leads to a drier setting with excellent air quality for feeding cattle.  “The building can help improve cattle performance and also help farmers remain good stewards of the land,” said Waddingham.

Waddingham says the Accu-Steel funds will be used in support of CSIF programs that provide direct assistance to Iowa livestock farmers.

CSIF was created by farmers to help farmers raise livestock successfully and responsibly.  It’s a joint partnership involving the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa Soybean Association, Iowa Turkey Federation and Midwest Dairy Association.

The non-profit, non-partisan organization provides assistance to farmers at no cost.  CSIF does not lobby or develop policy.  Farm families wanting a helping hand can contact the Coalition at 1-800-932-2436 or visit
