As I said before, over 90% of their land is devoted to farming. My mom grew up on a farm so she knows a lot about farming. I love all my relatives in Iowa.

    • Iowa is one of the few states in the nation without a professional sports team. They don’t really cheer for the professional teams that often, mainly college. Their main college teams are the University of Iowa Hawkeyes and the Iowa State University Cyclones. I personally like both but when they face off head to head I say go Hawkeyes.
