Here are some facts about Iwoa.In Iowa there are about five times more hogs than people.Since Iowa is known for farming and agriculture, you might think that most of the state’s population lives in rural areas. It used to be that way, but as machines were developed to do much of the work on farms, many farmers moved to cities to find better jobs. Now about 60 percent of people live in cities. Still, Iowa is less urban than most of its neighbor states, and Iowa’s cities are relatively small. Des Moines, the state capital, is the largest city.Iowa is famous for rolling hills and some of the richest and deepest topsoil in the United States. Iowa contains a quarter of the world’s top farmland. Millions of years ago, the region was covered by warm seas. During the ice age, glaciers pushed down from the north, flattening the landscape and grinding up rock and gravel. As the climate warmed, lakes formed from the melted ice. These lakes later drained away, and the empty lakebeds are now the gentle hills covering almost all of Iowa today. Evergreen forests gave way to grasslands that built up the deep, black topsoil for which the state is famous. However, the landscape is different in the northeast. There, Iowa’s rivers flow into the wide Mississippi River. The rivers wear away the riverbanks as they move closer to the Mississippi, creating bluffs between 300 and 400 feet (90–120 m) high. Iowa is the 26th largest state in the United States, with an area of 56,276 square miles (145,754 sq km).
