Back at the beginning of October, a fairly severe blizzard passed through parts of South Dakota and devastated a whole lot of ranch farm families who were unable to save their herds. A lot of people have stepped up to the challenge of helping those poor ranchers, including establishing the Rancher’s Relief Fund.
Tyson Foods made a deal with the charity that promoted the relief efforts and also donated $50,000. Tyson made good on that promise and cut a check to the organization.
