Currently, Agri-Management Services has more than 50 clients in six states. For three consecutive years, it has retained 100 percent of its clients due largely to Isaacson’s excellence in client service, expertise in farming practices and strategic approach to minimizing production risk.

“Dick [Isaacson] has been active in the Iowa chapter of the ASFMRA, serving as education director and past president … with his work often rivaling national programs.”

Also, key to Isaacson’s success is his involvement in ASFMRA. “Dick has been active in the Iowa chapter of the ASFMRA, serving as education director and past president,” says Darrell Limkeman, Isaacson’s friend, fellow ASFMRA member and the 1998 recipient of the Farm Manager of the Year Award. “During his term as president, Dick did a top-notch job planning and executing state programs, with his work often rivaling national programs.”
