From the earliest days, the emergence of successful farms and related industries in the American Midwest depended on the hard work and vision of people who played leadership roles in these vital enterprises.

That was true when pioneers first cultivated the vast prairies, and it is increasingly true in the much changed agricultural world of the 21st century.

The agricultural workplace encompasses a wide assortment of occupations.

In present-day America, farms are part of the story, but so too are a wide array of other businesses that are a part of the rural economy. Even the farms themselves have become much larger and more multifaceted entities than was the case decades ago.

Throughout the contemporary agricultural world, there are talented leaders who have the organizational skills necessary to make this important sector of our economy thrive.

This issue of Farm News includes a section devoted to telling the stories of some of the leaders who are part of the success story of agriculture in Iowa.

These articles serve as a reminder that American agriculture without skilled leaders would be unthinkable.

They play critical roles that are vital if this sector of the Hawkeye State’s economy is to remain the pacesetter for the planet.
