Beef in Iowa
Play • 45 min
Iowa is good at raising lots of types of crops and livestock, and beef cattle is no exception. Since Iowa is home to lots of corn and soybean production, a grain feed source is handy for livestock producers. But Iowa also has lots of pastureland, which may not be quite suited for row crop production. Many of Iowa’s cattle farms are situated on these pastures, where cows and calves graze the thick Iowa prairie grasses.

In this episode, you’ll meet Corinne Rowe of Rowe’s Red Cows (, a beef cattle producer in central Iowa that raises Red Angus cows and calves with her family. You will also meet Kelsey Wigans of Gilmore City-Bradgate Elementary school (, who runs a unique gardening, food, and nutrition program for K-6 students in the community.

Corinne and Kelsey work on different sides of food production and nutrition education, but have a lot in common; including their passion for good food and education about food sources.
