Fencing Sales and Installation
Grassland Solutions was originally founded by Terry Schaefer in 1998. When his son, Matt, returned from college, Terry shifted back to farming full-time, allowing Matt to focus on the fencing business. Matt and Terry have both raised cattle, sheep and equine utilizing their own products and installations.
A new addition to their farm has been the pasture irrigation system designed by K-Line. This system is ideal for irrigation of a forage based operation.

In addition to the fencing business, Matt also backgrounds beef cattle, utilizing a rotational grazing system. He and his wife, Karin, live in Howard Lake with their two children.
