Jim Barnes

Ag-Works Manager

Jim joined BEL Group back in 2002, initially coming on-board as the Springfield Farm Manager, after two seasons he migrated to take on the Farm Manager role at Ashton. Two more seasons on Ashton lead him to take up the role of AgWorks Manager where he has stayed for the past 11 years.

A wicked sense of humor paired with his depth of knowledge about all things 'Dairy' makes Jim an integral part of the BEL team.  He shines in an environment where he can pass on his wealth of knowledge and skills while spinning a good 'Yarn'.
