Being Physically Disabled in Iowa: Farmer

Today Iowa Public Radio has the third segment in a five-part series titled “Being Physically Disabled in Iowa.” It’s estimated that some 20 percent of the nation’s farmers are working the land with some type of physical disability. That compares with six percent of the overall workforce who are disabled. Reporter Rob Dillard takes us to a farm in Central Iowa, where a long-time farmer is adjusting to a missing limb.
