Meet an Iowa cattle farmer: Dan Hanrahan of Madison County, Iowa

The Hanrahan Ranch of Cumming, Iowa in Madison County shares the importance of cattle care and stewardship of the resources they are provided. Dan, with his parents Virginia and Richard, work towards leaving a legacy for the land to be better than when they started. “The best way I can describe stewardship is that we are fortunate to be caretakers for the time we have here. Always thinking, ‘what can I do to improve the ground? What can I do to improve the herd for those who come after me?' It's a responsibility for something larger than yourself”, says Dan of his vision for the farm.
