Jason Owen, president of Accu-Steel, said the family-owned business is proud to serve Iowa’s livestock farmers today and into the future. “Iowa’s cattle industry is an important part of the state and local economy. Accu-Steel is committed to helping the industry continue to grow,” said Owen. “Working with the Coalition we can continue to make Iowa’s cattle industry more competitive, which will allow more young people to go back to the family farm.”
Brian Waddingham, executive director of the Coalition, says the Templeton, Iowa-based firm has stepped forward with a $3,000 investment. “We’re extremely grateful for Accu-Steels’ investment in the Coalition and appreciate their continued support of Iowa agriculture,” he says.
Accu-Steel Covered Buildings are designed to maintain a consistent environment, regardless of wind direction or outside elements which leads to a drier setting with excellent air quality for feeding cattle. “The building can help improve cattle performance and can also help farmers not only meet but exceed environmental regulations,” said Waddingham.
