Tuesday, June 22, an evening with Frank Schiefelbein II began with a twist that changed his life, numerous turning points as things began to unravel and his dream to become a farmer became real more than 50 years ago. Early on, his farmer neighbors had fun predicting the exact day and time the Schiefelbeins would give up farming and move back to the city. If you were not there, you missed the story behind the story of this award-winning family, now breeding prize-winning animals, teaching and operating one of the most successful black angus cattle enterprises in the world.
In 22 years, the Schiefelbein family's wrestling career for Kimball Area High School accounted for 553 wrestling victories for our Kimball Cubs.
The tenacity learned from wrestling not only gave them amazing vitality, but prepared them for an adulthood of farming together.
