Pork in Iowa Outstanding in their Field

    • Education

Pork production is an important part of Iowa agriculture. Iowa is the number one pork producing state, in part because of high levels of corn and soybean production, which is what pigs eat!

In this episode, you’ll hear from Jarrod and Shari Bakker, who have a farrow-to-finish pig operation alongside of a show pig operation.

You’ll also hear from Tara Norman, an elementary school teacher that uses agriculture regularly in her classroom, and also leads an Ag Club for her students after school.

Through these interviews, we hope you’ll learn about pork production and how well the application of that science fits in the classroom. Listen in to learn more!
