03-16-2012 in Communications Internship
WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – March 16, 2012 – The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF) has enhanced its service to Iowa’s livestock and poultry farmers by naming Rose Koester as summer intern.
Koester will assist the organization by coordinating farmer and ag student education and outreach activities. She will also assist with the day-to-day operations of the organization, including promoting and conducting open houses and other special events.
A junior year at Iowa State University, Koester is majoring in Animal Science and has been actively involved in the livestock industry, particularly through Block and Bridle. She grew up on a diversified grain and livestock farm near Gladbrook.
“I’m extremely excited to be part of the Coalition team and to continue its service to farmers. I look forward to meeting and working with farm families around the state who go to great lengths to care for their livestock and the environment every day,” Koester says.
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. It does not develop policy, lobby or charge for its services.
This positive, solutions-based approach to helping livestock farmers grow is a collaborative effort involving the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Farm Bureau, Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa Soybean Association, Iowa Turkey Federation and the Midwest Dairy Association.
Families wanting confidential assistance in growing their livestock farms responsibly and successfully are encouraged to contact CSIF at 1-800-932-2436 or visit www.supportfarmers.com.
