2024 Iowa CCA of the Year

The 2024 Iowa Certified Crop Adviser of the Year has been awarded to Dave Lemke, Landus Cooperative. Lemke was recognized for this achievement at the 2024 Agribusiness Showcase & Conference February 12 in Altoona, Iowa, during the Iowa CCA Thirtieth Anniversary Celebration banquet.

Dave was among the first to complete the CCA exam when it launched in 1992. Since then, he’s honored the standards set forth by the CCA by approaching his farmers with strong morals and respect to deliver the best service to them. In doing so, he’s shared his knowledge with new crop advisors and other farmers. Landus shared a short feature of Dave on our website and social media channels (full link below), and we encourage you to take a look at the comment section filled with responses praising his abilities and knowledge.
