Frank Lessiter presenting Paul Schaffert with 1976 No-Till Farmer of the Year award

Paul Schaffert, CEO of Schaffert Mfg., started farming when he was in high school and from there he took it to the next level by designing innovative attachments.

In 1976, Paul was awarded the No-Till Farmer of the year and that granted him the exposure he needed to start his own business and promote non-traditional farming practices. Paul also became a Buffalo equipment dealer, giving him greater exposure to farmers wanting to try something new.

This was the real beginning of his short-line equipment company and that ultimately led to the development and patenting of several no-till planter attachments and related equipment.

In 2005, Paul received No-Till Farmer’s No-Till Innovator award in the area of Business & Service. This achievement recognized Paul’s exemplary leadership and contributions to advancement in no-till farming.

Today, Paul, along with his excellent staff, continually look for ways to improve farming practices
