Polk County Cattlemen invest in Iowa agriculture

05-24-2012 in Livestock

The Polk County Cattlemen, an affiliate of the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, 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 group has stepped forward with an investment to support our efforts in working with livestock farmers.

“We’re extremely grateful for Polk County Cattlemen’s contribution to the Coalition and deeply appreciative of their support of Iowa agriculture,” he says.

“The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers and the Polk County Cattlemen have common goals, we both deeply care about helping Iowa farm families with growing their farms responsibly and bringing the next generation back to the farm,” said Jim Nelson, cattle farmer from Mitchellville and president of the Polk County Cattlemen.

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 www.supportfarmers.com.
