In 1892, I.A. Zimmerer came from Kansas and settled in Lindsay, Cooke County, Texas. He brought with him his wife Hellena who bore him 6 sons; Bruno, Vincent, Henry, Leonard, Francis, and Paul; and one daughter; Dorothy.
Prior to World War II, Henry Zimmerer became a retail Case tractor dealer in Gainesville, Texas. With the coming of World War II which led to a shortage of tractors and equipment to sell, Henry went back to full time farming. After the war, Henry, Vincent, and Bruno formed “Zimmerer Bros.” Comprised of three farms totaling approximately 1300 acres, they specialized in three main harvests: small grain, hay and beef cattle. They took great pride in the quality of their hay. They became the supplier of bedding straw and feed hay for the Fort Worth Stock Show.
Even though their farm went along with the trend toward larger and more efficiently operated farms, they kept their standards to a close knit family type farm, where they lived on the very land they worked.
The three brothers’ partnership did not create any management decision problems. One time, after a cattleman made them an offer on some calves, the three went into a huddle. After a few minutes, they came out and announced that they would sell for that price. The majority ruled. They realized that there was a lot of give and take in a business relationship. Thus was formed the foundation for a family destined to be in the farm and equipment business. We take this opportunity to remember our fathers without whose influence this would not have been possible.
