Bob Ausberger grew up on a farm north of Jefferson, Iowa and attended school there. He graduated from the University of Iowa and went on to teach 7th and 8th graders.  After teaching for 4 years, he returned to Greene County to continue farming.  He has always been interested in soil and water conservation, which led him to begin no-till farming in the late 80’s.

Bob became interested in the Lincoln Highway in 1990 and has been actively educating the public of the importance of the highway.  He helped form the Greene County Lincoln Highway Association, the state Lincoln Highway Association, and the national Lincoln Highway Association.
