Q&A with the schafers

We are just a normal family on a modern day normal farm. I believe as a farmer or rancher it's your responsibility to leave this Earth in better condition than when you started, and if you do your very best to care for the land and the cattle, then they will take care of you. -- Daniel Schafer
