Jeff holds a bachelor of Science degree in Agricultural studies from Iowa State University and is a Certified Crop Advisor. He grew up near the town of Crystal Lake, IA on a family farm, and now operates his own farming operation near Hanlontown, IA.

He feels fortunate to work with a company like AFS, to bring the knowledge, and applications of these to the customers of the Manly area. Jeff’s married to his wife Jennifer.
