Holdrege, Nebraska - Hello! I am Janel Schemper and this is my first AAWH blog. I am a third generation custom harvester. I've been going on harvest my entire life. The 1950s was the start of my family business known as "Schemper Harvesting." My grandpa, Jerry Schemper, was brave enough to leave his farm and went out on the road and made himself a living in the custom harvesting business. My Dad, LaVern Schemper, is the oldest of six kids and is a second generation custom harvester. I have a lifelong bond with my parents (LaVern and Carlene) and three older siblings (Julie, JC and Jared) through our family business. The combine cab was where I spent my time with my Dad or siblings riding along with them and learned all about operating a combine.
