Starting a farm with livestock continues to be a popular path for beginning farmers.
Brian Waddingham with the Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers tells Brownfield he’s seeing a lot of interest in cattle.
“Whether it’s calving barns, finishing barns, open feedlots, I think cattle is a real bright spot right now. But also we are seeing some opportunities in turkey and poultry production as well.”
The Coalition helps farmers choose good locations for new livestock barns and feedlots.
