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.
