~OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) - Veterans interested in farming will have more opportunities to learn about the trade in 2014.
 
     The newly formed Farmer Veteran Coalition of Iowa will hold four workshops aimed at helping individuals interested in starting a farm business or finding employment in agriculture.
 
     The one-day workshops will focus on networking opportunities and education. They follow a statewide conference held Dec. 14 in Des Moines.
 
     The first workshop will be held Feb. 20 in Ottumwa. The others will be held Feb. 22 in Waterloo, March 13 in Red Oak and March 15 in Storm Lake.
 
     Coalition chair Ed Cox says veterans are a distinct group of farmers with diverse interests, but they all have a history of service and a desire to provide food to their communities.
