A 10-year study recently completed by Iowa State University confirms what many farmers already know to be true: that farm families raising hogs in modern barns have a positive social and economic benefit on their neighborhoods and communities.

Measurements included total household income, income inequality, poverty, infant mortality and crime rates. Respondents also were surveyed about their attitudes toward community members and government and neighborhood services. The study also gauged people’s involvement in their community and the extent of “good neighboring.”

Sapp says the study’s findings suggest a modest favorable effect of large-scale agriculture on quality of life in the 99 Iowa communities.
