AMES, Iowa—Lessons learned from the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture will be the topic of the Iowa Learning Farms webinar at noon on Wednesday, June 23.
During the webinar, Mark Rasmussen, director of the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture, will review the history of the Leopold Center. This history illustrates that many of the issues and challenges in agriculture that were points of contention when the Leopold Center was created are still with us today.
“Progress at times has been slow and demonstrates that sustainability is a continual journey rather than a set end point,” said Rasmussen. “New approaches to old problems are needed to keep Iowa agriculture vibrant.”
Rasmussen has been the director of the Leopold Center since 2012 and is also a tenured professor in the Iowa State University Department of Animal Science. His current work and research interests are in microbiology and climate change.
