Turkey in Iowa

Released Monday, 6th April 2020
Good episode? Give it some love!
Iowa is a top-10 turkey producing state, primarily raising toms (male turkeys) for meat. Iowa is a good place to raise turkeys because of the easy access to grain for feed, and farmland to spread the manure that turkeys leave behind.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Katie Hermanson, a turkey farmer and Agriculture in the Classroom coordinator that wears many hats in her community. Katie will talk about her family’s farm and what turkey production looks like.

You’ll also hear from John Seiser, an upper elementary science and social studies teacher that goes above and beyond to connect agricultural concepts (like raising turkeys and chickens) to science and social studies standards.

Though Katie and John both work with turkeys, their operations look different and have different purposes. But, they both benefit Iowa’s consumers, students, and economy. Listen in to learn more!
