Business Climate
Audubon County consists of five incorporated towns; Audubon, Brayton, Exira, Gray and Kimballton. Our business community is made up of small, medium and large firms offering manufacturing, products and services. Audubon County offers tremendous potential growth for new business and business expansion through its availability of space, strong workforce and support services. Also Audubon and Cass counties have a joint development project at the I-80 interchange with Highway 71.

Location and Transportation
Audubon County has some of the world's richest rolling farmland and woodlands, which offers peace and solitude sought by families and workers needing a retreat from today's hectic world. Yet Audubon County's proximity to Interstate 80 and major cities provides the best of both worlds.

The communities in Audubon County have superior schools, affordable housing, parks, trails, lakes and friendly caring people.
