The Crauns milk about 180 head of Holsteins, selling the product to Dairy Farmers of America. They also have a 100-head cow-calf beef operation, raising Angus and Angus crosses. With crops — corn, soybeans, alfalfa and grass hay — and about 300 acres of pasture, they own or lease about 900 acres of farmland in two parts of the counties.
