Title

Utility wagon and chicken coop, 1941

Description

A general utility wagon hitched to a coop. A crate filled with white chickens is balanced on the wagon. A workman is standing next to the wagon and looking into the crate. Farm utility buildings are in the background.
The history of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences begins with the founding of the Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm in 1858, with classes beginning in 1869. As a land-grant institution, Iowa State was founded primarily to provide practical education in agriculture and the mechanic arts. Through the years, agriculture courses and short courses have focused on agricultural engineering, agronomy, animal husbandry, dairying, forestry, and horticulture. In the 21st century, the focus is on animal and the plant sciences, biotechnology life sciences, sustainability, and global development.
