WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – May 12, 2017 – The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers (CSIF) is pleased to announce the addition of Emma Wilson, who will serve as the organization’s communications intern.
Wilson will assist CSIF by creating content for the organization’s communications channels and coordinating farmer outreach activities. She will also assist with the day-to-day operations of the organization, including promoting and conducting open houses, workshops and other special events.
Wilson will return to Iowa State University in the fall as a senior double-majoring in agricultural communications and journalism. She is active in many student organizations including the Agricultural Communicators of Tomorrow Club and Iowa State Bacon Expo. The Guthrie County native grew up on a diversified grain and livestock farm near Guthrie Center.
“I’m excited to spend my summer with the Coalition team supporting and advocating for farmers. Growing up on a family farm instilled my passion and appreciation for agriculture and I look forward to connecting and working with fellow farm families,” Wilson says.
The Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers was created by farmers to help farmers raise livestock successfully and responsibly. It’s a joint partnership involving the Iowa Beef Industry Council, Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa Poultry 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.
