Bio:

Ted is very much a man of the land. He has been a dairy rancher all his life; in fact, the very ranch he owns was owned by his father and grandfather. Their farming and ranching wisdom was passed down through the generations, so Ted is the result of 3 generations of dairy ranching experience as well as general farming ability (including his veterinarian skills).

While Ted has been doing farming for ages, and is somewhat of a conservative traditionalist, he is more than willing to employ new techniques when affordable. For example, his milking machines. He still milks cows on occasion, but there is simply too much work for one rancher without relying on some technological support. Aside from ranching, he lives a simple life, mostly because he is such a workaholic that there really isn’t much time for life outside of work.

Jon has known him for decades, as he was a friend of Jon’s parents.
