Iowa Agricultural Development Division
Obtaining enough capital to pursue a career in production agriculture can be challenging. But if it's your dream to own and manage your own crop or livestock operation, the Iowa Agricultural Development Division (IADD) may be able to lend a helping hand.
The IADD was established by the Iowa General Assembly in 1980 to provide financial assistance to Iowa’s grain and livestock producers. Operating expenses for the IADD are derived from modest application and service fees paid by program participants. The IADD also earns interest from a trust fund, but it does not receive any state tax dollars.
