Meet Florida Rancher: Steven "Beaver" Yoder

Meet Steven "Beaver" Yoder of Altha, Florida. A third generation beef rancher, the Yoder family has tended the same land in Florida since 1952. After many years also growing peanuts and cotton on their land, the Yoder's now focus their efforts on their diverse cattle operation, which includes cow-calf, stocker, and feedlot sectors. Their location in the Florida panhandle, an area with a unique pine plains landscape is much different from the coastal plains and flat woods of peninsular Florida. This provides the Yoder family an opportunity to partner with area crop farmers whose rich forage-growing soils provide an ideal location for grazing cattle. This provides cattle farmers an opportunity to rotate the use of their land in the off-season, and the Yoder's use this as an opportunity to graze and grow their calves under the Florida sunshine for several months longer.
