Hello, my name is Russell Yoder! As a life long resident of Wayland, Iowa, I grew up on a turkey farm and been gobble’en my whole life. After I graduated high school from WACO in 1994 took a few detours and graduated from the American Institute of Business in 1999.That very same year I bought my first turkey farm and been living the dream ever since!
I am married to my wife Becky and together we have 6 children and 2 grand daughters. We stay busy with family, school functions and community organizations. Russell is a life long member of Sugar Creek Mennonite Church, 21 year veteran of the Wayland Fire Department, 18 year member of the Lions Club, 18 years as treasure of the Wayland 4th of July CelebrationCommittee and many successful communityfundraising projects.The past 12 years I’ve had the privilege of serving on the Iowa Turkey Federation Board, serving as President 2017 and 2018.Getting to go to the National Convention and doing the Turkey Pardoning with my family and Governor Kim Reynolds and her family at the Governor’s mansion was truly the highlight.
I am very excited to join the LKR family!!
