The Coalition to Support Iowa's Farmers (CSIF) was established in 2004 by farmers for farmers to help those that raise livestock manage responsible changes to their livestock farms. CSIF does this by helping farmers navigate the maze of state and federal regulations, providing a building site analysis, enhancing neighbor relations, and providing consultation on safeguarding the environment.
The Iowa Cattlemen's Association was one of the original founders of the Coalition. Today, ICA and 7 other commodity and farm groups continue as guiding members of CSIF. See some of the tools they offer current or prospective livestock farmers.
