Poweshiek members pack Supervisor’s meeting

Poweshiek County? How about “People Power”shiek County?!?

Yesterday, 56 Poweshiek County Iowa CCI members packed their Board of Supervisor’s meeting to tell them to deny a proposed Prestage Farms hog factory expansion.

The meeting was extremely powerful, with almost everyone in the room speaking up and doing a great job.

Three representatives from Prestage Farms, including CEO Ryan Pudenz from Ames and one representative from Pinnacle, who helps build their sites, also attending the meeting.

We are very confident that the Supervisors will recommend denial however we won’t find out until their July 24th meeting.

The people of Poweshiek County have been fighting all summer against Prestage Farms — a huge factory farming corporation based out of North Carolina that wants to expand two existing factory farm sites in Chester Township.


Members stand by the float they drove in the 4th of July parade. Member Jim Yungclas drove the float and parked it outside of yesterday's Supervisor's meeting.
