My name is Shana Hilgerson. This past summer I had the opportunity to work with ISU Extension and Outreach in north central Iowa, visited producers, farmer's markets, and held children's programs. I also got to travel the state as the Alternate Iowa State Dairy Princess, which was an awesome way to meet other inspiring young women advocating for their industry.
Be sure to sign up for the ISU Extension and Outreach Women in Ag monthly newsletter! Each month, engage with other Iowa women in agriculture. Learn what events and courses are being offered through Iowa State University and other organizations throughout Iowa. And look for stories about your friends and neighbors across the state!
We look forward to hearing from you!
This year, there is nearly $18 million available in competitive grant funds for those interested in implementing value-added processes. These Value Added Producer Grants (VAPG) can be used to fund either the development of marketing and business plans to establish a value-added operation, or to give access to capital in order to help make your value-added operation more competitive at the domestic or international market.
