Iowa hosts farm recovery events

Iowa hosts farm recovery events

By Andi Anderson

To assist Iowans affected by the recent spring storms, state, federal, and local agencies, along with various farming industry groups, are organizing Agriculture Recovery Centers. These centers will operate as one-day events designed to function like resource fairs, offering crucial information and support to the agricultural community.

The first of these events will take place in Pottawattamie County at the Treynor Community Center, located at 11 W Main St., Treynor, IA, from noon to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 13. Additional centers are scheduled for Union and Polk counties, aiming to address the specific needs of farmers and rural residents not covered by standard FEMA or state programs.

Organizations such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Iowa Insurance Division, and others are collaborating with industry groups like the Iowa Pork Producers, Iowa Soybean, and Iowa Cattlemen. Their goal is to pinpoint unmet needs and distribute vital resources effectively.

Farmers seeking more information on the services available can access the Iowa Disaster Agriculture Resource Guide at the following link: Iowa Disaster Agriculture Resource Guide.

These recovery centers are important for providing immediate aid and support, ensuring that Iowa's farmers can quickly bounce back from the damage inflicted by severe weather conditions this spring.
