Urgent Need in Iowa for Livestock Generators

Jan 22, 2010
The Iowa Cattlemen's Association has been contacted by the Iowa governor’s office regarding the immediate need for generators in the West Central Iowa area that has been so severely hit by recent ice storms.  Livestock operations may be without power for several additional days and the availability of generators is critically short of meeting the need.  In particular, anyone having a PTO-powered 40,000 to 50,000 watt generator that they could loan, rent or sell to someone in need would be of great assistance.  If you can help in a timely manner, please email or call Jamie Haberl of Safeguard Iowa Partnership at or 515-246-1707.

yes i do and i dont lend it out becase i may need it. we got our first one in 1971 when we upgraded the milking system and could no longer run it off the intake manifold of our truck. we have been a week without power at times. the last time i spent around $100 a day in fuel to run it.
