Dave Scheiderer

Dave Scheiderer, Owner, CCA

Dave grew up near Marysville, Ohio, surrounded by crop and livestock agriculture. 

For as long as Dave can remember, farming and agriculture have been a part of his life. It was no surprise to friends and family when he decided to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Business from The Ohio State University. 

Dave has worked in the ag production business for 35 years. In 1990, he started Integrated Ag Services with his wife, Zita, and is grateful that IAS is still going strong 26 years later.

He enjoys the challenge of trying new things and then seeing the results of each crop year, seeing what has worked and what hasn’t. He is also a partner with his brother, Gary, in a corn and soybean crop farming operation, which allows him to test all of his crazy ideas. 

He has been married for almost 27 years; he and Zita have three adult daughters, two son-in-laws, and their first granddaughter on the way. 

In his spare time, Dave loves to be with his family and occasionally golf. 

Dave was named the 2015 Precision Ag Crop Adviser/Entrepreneur award winner by the PrecisionAg Institute through its annual PrecisionAg Awards of Excellence. The international recognition is presented to one individual or team who have established a demonstrable expertise in precision technologies and practices by devising a new tool/concept/procedure, or who have used their expertise to the benefit of their grower-customers.

 After college, Alicia worked as an agronomy educator for Penn State Extension in Western Pennsylvania for two years.

Grant Davis

Grant Davis, Agronomic Consultant, CCA

Grant grew up in rural Miami County between the small towns of Casstown and Christiansburg, where he still lives today.

This experience made it an easy decision for him to pursue working in the agriculture industry. 

Grant received a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Education in 2006 from The Ohio State University, where he also met his wife, Stephanie. 

He started his career in agriculture with Bambauer Fertilizer & Seed, and then spent four years with Monsanto on the corn research team in western Ohio.

In early 2012, Grant joined Integrated Ag Services as an agronomic consultant. He enjoys the seasonality that agriculture brings, and, as a result, being able to do something different every day. 

Grant also enjoys working with Stephanie on their own farming operation, through which they raise beef cattle and grow grain crops. He is active with the Ohio Farm Bureau and serves on the Miami County board of trustees. 

Cory and Stephanie have been married for eight years and welcomed their first child, a daughter named Brynn, into the world in April of 2015.

Evan currently lives in the house where he grew up on a small farm located in Springfield, Ohio, with his wife, Nicole, and their lab, Willie. He and his wife are expecting their first baby in September. He currently is farming corn and soybeans on the 12 acres of land that surrounds their house to experiment new farming technologies to help become more experienced with what is available to farmers today. He likes to put on his “farmer hat” to gain more experience and sit on the other side of the table outside of the crop consulting. In his spare time, he enjoys doing water sports, hanging out with his friends and family, hunting, snowboarding, and traveling to see his sisters and their families who both live on the west coast.
