I am still relatively new to Iowa and before coming here I did not know how much I have to thank Iowa for. Corn, pork producers and of course the band Slipknot (Yes, I am a fan!) and so much more! I am learning more about this state every day and I was surprised to learn some of the inventions that came from Iowa.

I honestly don't know where society would be without some of these inventions today but I don't think Iowa gets enough credit for how much you all contribute to the ever growing economy and society. From computers to ice cream and of course John Deere and everything in between, Iowa has helped grow our country more than we know!
