  • Farmers and ranchers are committed to the long game
    As a fourth-generation farmer and rancher, you could say farming and ranching runs deep in my veins. My ancestors were farmers and ranchers in Germany and Russia before coming to the U.S., and my family still farms the land my great-grandfather homesteaded back in 1907. We grow wheat, safflower, millet, corn and alfalfa and raise beef cattle in western South Dakota. Our cattle ranching gets the most interest from folks these days. I often hear questions about how beef is raised and whether it’s sustainable. I’m proud of the work my family has been doing for generations to produce quality food and keep our ranch sustainable for more than a century now.
