Reinvesting In Iowa » Iowa Ag Commodities

IGA members support Iowa's livestock, poultry and dairy industries with significant purchases of their products each year. The economic impact for the state, and the benefit of providing casino patrons with the nation's best agricultural products, is a mutually beneficial partnership. In 2015, this localized effort helped IGA member casinos generate more than $1 billion in economic impact for Iowa.

Following is a summary of the annual purchases at each property. You will note the collective totals result in millions of pounds of beef, pork, turkey and chicken, as well as significant quantities of eggs and milk.
