Ogdensburg, Wisconsin -- Thursday, January 18, 2018
Maric Schachtschneider, 9, plays with his gun after milking and feeding the family's dairy cows on their farm outside of Ogdenburg, Wisconsin. The two eldest Schachtschneider brothers help with farm maintenance, including milking and feeding the cows using a skid steer, before and after school.
Three months earlier, Cullen Schachtschneider, 6, nearly lost his leg when he got tangled up with a machine on the family's small dairy farm near Ogdensburg, Wisconsin. Missing most of his kindergarten year, Schachtschneider has undergone multiple surgeries and skin grafts.
