WASHINGTON D.C. - Congressman Steve King celebrated the start of the Iowa State Fair by meeting with many representatives of Iowa's next generation of agriculture leaders, including Miss Rodeo Iowa, Amanda Eason. The two used the opportunity to discuss issues important to the Iowa cattle industry.
Ms. Eason, from Clarinda in Page county, is 22-year old daughter of Steve and Alisa Eason. Amanda received her Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science from Iowa State University in May, and will begin coursework at the College of Veterinary Medicine in the fall.
"Amanda represents the future of Iowa's agriculture economy," said Congressman King. I'm very encouraged that Amanda plans to practice veterinary medicine here in Iowa after she completes her degree. She and her generation will decide the destiny of our Iowa."
"We wish the best to our Miss Rodeo Iowa as she starts her veterinary studies this fall," said Congressman King.
Congressman Steve King (R-IA) represents Western Iowa in the United States Congress and sits on the Agriculture, Judiciary and Small Business Committees.
