Conversation with Diane Rosenberg of Jefferson County Farmers and Neighbors

Diane Rosenberg heads up the Iowa organization called Jefferson County Farmers and Neighbors or JFAN. While the rest of Iowa is drowning in hog manure from Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations, Jefferson County has managed to keep the onslaught at a minimum. Outside the county, JFAN is known for its publications on several CAFO-related topics such as liability for farmers accepting CAFO manure as fertilizer on their properties.

While surrounding counties host thousands of CAFOs, Jefferson County has managed to keep the incursion to a minimum. Rosenberg credits constant vigilance and a community willing to work. Learn more at https://www.jfaniowa.org/
