I'm sure Iowa has plenty of places for soil testing check with one of the major universities there that has a agriculture dept they usually do soil testing, at least they do here.

Search on "iowa agricultural co-op" and/or "iowa agricultural extension"

For example, contact the folks on the right hand side of the following link and ask them where you can get an analysis of a soil sample from residential turfgrass.
http://www.extension.iastate.edu/topic/gardening

Here is the Iowa State University soil test lab:
http://www.agron.iastate.edu/soiltesting/
Go here,
http://www.agron.iastate.edu/soiltes...%28menu%29.htm
and follow through to "Horticulture Crops (lawns, gardens, vineyards)".

If you can't find a local place you are not looking hard enough. If you REALLY can't find a local place then just send your samples to Rutgers (see links above) and you'll have results in 5 days.
