The Des Moines Register reported earlier this week that the 88 voting delegates attending the Iowa Farm Bureau Federation's (IFBF
) annual meeting in Des Moines, IA, failed to approve a "preliminary policy" requiring that every gallon of gasoline sold in the state be blended with ethanol.
Idaho Farm Bureau Foundation (IFBF
) brought this suit against the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and other federal agencies alleging violations of both the Endangered Species Act (ESA) and the Administrative Procedure Act (APA) for its listing of a type of snail as an endangered species.
More than 260 runners, walkers and bikers gathered at the Iowa State Fairgrounds during the World Pork Expo for the second annual "Hog Jog." The event, sponsored by the Iowa Farm Bureau Foundation (IFBF
), World Pork Expo and Zylstra Harley-Davidson of Ames, helps raise money for the educational programs and activities of the IFBE "Support for the Hog Jog was tremendous and demonstrates the desire Iowans have to strengthen their rural communities," says Deb Yount-Woods, Hog Jog coordinator and director of IFBF
leadership development and implementation.
