Those who knew Bob Wells re­­member his sense of humor, his strong work ethic and his compassion. But it was his true love for agriculture and farm families that colleagues and friends re­­member the most.

Bob Wells, a field specialist in farm management and agribusiness for Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach, died earlier this month. He was 68.

One of Bob’s biggest contributions to Iowa agriculture was his involvement in Annie’s Project, an educational program dedicated to strengthening women’s roles in the modern farm enterprise.
