Iowa’s fertile soil makes the production
of grain, particularly, corn a central part of the state’s economy. Hay and oats
are also major crops. Corn grown in Iowa is used to feed livestock, making
cattle and pig production another important element of the economy. In 1997,
Iowa led the nation in the production of corn, soybeans, hogs, and pigs, and
ranked in the top ten states in the raising of cattle. Today, Iowa’s farm income
ranks second in the U.S.
Agriculture also benefits the state’s chief industry, food processing. Many
factories in Sioux City and Cedar Rapids process farm products. Cement is the
most important mineral product; others are stone, sand, gravel, and gypsum.
Mineral production is small, however.
