Northwest and Allee Research and Demonstration Farm

Publication Date



It was a busy year at the Allee Farm. Educational tours were presented to 40 Japanese college students and 47 Newell-Fonda third-graders. They enjoyed viewing the pasture farrowing system, crops, garden projects, and cattle. The Allee Farm field day informed 76 people on the topics of calcium levels for market cattle, manure composting, organic crop production, and swine pasture farrowing. Grazing organic chickens in a movable vehicle called a “chicken tractor” drew an additional 25 visitors. The Newell Achievers 4-H Club created their “Secret Garden” this past summer. This project involved 23 4-H members who grew and maintained the garden. The Allee Farm hosted 57 pork producers for a swine artificial insemination class sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Vision 2020. The Allee Farm hosted over 875 people providing hands-on educational opportunities to youth and adults. We extend an open invitation to all to stop in and visit the farm as well as the Allee Victorian mansion.
