German farmers view Iowa farm, discuss trade issues
Representatives from Germany’s ag sector visited Iowa last week, hoping to further talks of a prospective trade agreement that could lower trade barriers and increase the flow of goods and services between the European Union and the United States.
And while Iowa Farm Bureau members learned about the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), the German delegation got a taste of Iowa agriculture by visiting a farm.
The group discussed a range of topics, from machinery and conservation to genetically modified (GMO) crops and cattle feed at the farm of Rod Collins, who took a break from working on his planter to speak with the group. Collins, a Dallas County Farm Bureau member, raises cattle and crops at his farm near Adel.
