The Drain Tile Safety Coalition was born in 2018 out of a series of drain tile-related tragedies that sadly resulted in fatalities and serious injuries to farmers and agricultural contractors. Those tragedies had a significant impact on farm communities, pipeline and utility operators and safety advocates. In response, a group of concerned and safety conscious individuals and organizations formed the Drain Tile Safety Coalition. Deanne and Amber will show a short documentary film “Three Seconds Later”. The goal of the film is to increase awareness and focus on farm safety procedures, particularly those related to drain tiling and other agricultural excavation activities near underground utilities and pipelines.
We’ve been calling members and hear the weather makes a difference on attendance to the Iowa LICA winter convention. We checked the forecast and it looks like no snow and Continue Reading →
For the past few years, the ladies of Iowa LICA have chosen a charity to sponsor while at the convention. This year they will be donating items and dollars to the Blank Park Zoo. With the funds raised, Iowa LICA will be adopting an animal at the zoo. Members of Iowa LICA met with the zoo and chose four different animals. Each will be associated with a district from the state and districts will challenge each other in the Penny Wars for the animal adoption. The district that earns the most money for the adoption will be named “district of the year”. The following animals will represent the associated districts. Who do you think will raise the most money and adopt their animal?
NE – Ring Tailed Lemur
SE – Amur Tiger
NW – Red Panda
SW – Reticulated Giraffe
While meeting with the zoo, Iowa LICA found that they can use assistance in gathering household items to care for all animals. We have a “Clean Your Cupboards for Critters” campaign. The zoo uses household items such as Tupperware/Rubbermaid containers, measuring cups/spoons for dietary needs of the animals in the commissary. There are so many more things you probably have laying around they could use for enrichment of the animals. Check out the animal wish list here https://www.blankparkzoo.com/support-the-zoo/animal-wish-lists/
Now’s the time to donate those items you received way back when you got married and get yourself some new. You deserve it! What better way to help care for these critters and get a little something in the process.
