Pigs And Sustainability in Iowa
45 min
The pork industry is big in Iowa. In fact, Iowa raises more pork than any other state. These animals grow and reproduce efficiently, eat the crops grown in Iowa, and naturally produce a high-quality fertilizer. Because of this, sustainability can be a big part of the conversation when talking about raising pigs and pork. Listen along as we hear from pig and grain farmer Mike Paustian, and middle school social studies teacher Beth Laughbaum to hear how sustainability plays a role in what they do.

This podcast is hosted by the Iowa Agriculture Literacy Foundation (www.iowaagliteracy.org), and New York Agriculture in the Classroom (www.agclassroom.org/ny).
