Ah, good question. One main conflict is between the representatives of the two feuding families about rights to the land: Georg Znaeym and Ulrich von Gradwitz.

The other main conflict is between these two men and nature (a struggle to survive).

They relate by the way they are resolved: they are about to make relative peace and start a new era (ending the feud one way) when wolves come on them (implying the land itself will put an end to their feud another way: by killing them).
