Iowa State Young Livestock Producers Network and Learn as Peer Group Members
The day-to-day happenings of livestock operations don’t usually allot much time to analyze the operation or connect with peers for learning or social interactions. Iowa State Extension specialists hope to change this. The Beginning and Young Livestock Producer Network, an Extension and Outreach initiative hopes to connect farmers and ranchers who may be independent by nature and sometimes reluctant to seek advice. By networking and sharing ideas and practices, producers will begin to see benefits related to the business side of livestock production and management.
