Officials visit northwest Iowa

ISU officials visited northwest Iowa recently to meet officials, business leaders and other residents of the Le Mars-Sioux Center area. Among their stops were the Wells' Dairy, Trans Ova Genetics and Darin Dykstra's dairy operation. They also met with the Sioux Center Chamber of Commerce and Le Mars business leaders.

Accompanying President Geoffroy on the visit were the dean of the College of Agriculture Wendy Wintersteen, vice provost for extension and outreach Jack Payne, executive director of university relations John McCarroll and director of ag communications Brian Meyer.
