Johnny Yoder, Deer Farmer

Johnny Yoder, is a great grandson of Noah Beachy and Catherine Plank.
Johnny and his wife, Ruth Ann Miller, are raising deer on their farm in Indiana state. He is also a minister in the Amish church. I wonder do deer require more care than horses or cows?
Credit goes to Marilyn and Bobby for the picture of the deer, thanks.

Jeanette (Beachy) Saffarek

I just received a letter from daughter Jeanette, with the above picture and the following comments. "We're having a great summer. We've caught 16 salmon thus far. Here's a picture of me with the BIGGEST coho I've ever caught. We didn't weigh it, but it must've been at least 20#."
Thanks Jeanette, you didn't learn your fishing skills from your dad. We will give your husband Kurt the credit, he is an outstanding fisherman.
Happy Fishing to you both.
