WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – May 19, 2014 – The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF) is pleased to announce the addition of Adelai Swanson, who will serve as the organization’s intern.
Swanson 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, Swanson is triple-majoring in Agricultural Business, International Agriculture and Public Relations. She is active in many student organizations, including the Agricultural Business Club. The Wright County native grew up on a diversified livestock and grain farm near Galt.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to intern with the Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers. My family utilized the services CSIF provides and I am excited to intern with an organization that positively impacts livestock producers around the state,” Swanson 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.
