05-13-2013 in Communications Internship

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – May 13, 2013 – The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF) welcomes Erin Steele as summer intern.

Steele 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 at Iowa State University, Steele is majoring in Agricultural Business and has been actively involved in the livestock industry, particularly through Block and Bridle and other associations. She grew up on a diversified livestock and grain farm near Anita.

“I’m very excited to be a part of the Coalition and to assist farmers around Iowa. I look forward to meeting and working with farm families with different backgrounds who have the same passion for agriculture that I have,” Steele 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.
