College Farm provides hands-on experience

Land-grant universities are meant to teach students about agriculture. Students at Iowa State University are doing just that--learning about agriculture with hands-on experiences.

The Iowa State dairy farm moved to its current location in 2007, combining two facilities into one, with a location close to campus where the students can help at the farm.

The ISU dairy farm employs 15 students during the school year and 10 throughout the summer, and students are responsible for all aspects of working on the farm.
