Managing Iowa Acreages


Congratulations . . .
you just bought yourself a nice piece of property in the country. Or you are at least seriously considering it. If you've never lived on an acreage, you probably have a lot of questions and are not sure where to go for the answers.

Questions like: How do I take care of this pond? How do I best take care of all this yard? Can this property support a few horses? What are the fencing laws in this area? Now that I have all this property, what's the best way to manage it? Are those pretty flowers really noxious weeds that are threatening the productivity of my land and my neighbor's?

As you've probably begun to figure out, there's a lot to know about owning and managing land. This booklet will get you started on some key land management issues and direct you to other resources for more help.
