Salina, Kan.-based K·Coe Isom (FY17 net revenue of $63.8 million) acquired Praedium Ventures of Urbandale, Iowa, a training, planning and consulting firm dedicated to improving agricultural farming operations.

Founded in 2008, Praedium provides cutting-edge tools for improved sustainability, and a team of consultants with expertise in animal welfare, OSHA compliance, sustainable feed and food programs, and premier dairy solutions.
