Summer is a season of leisure– Sitting on the patio, or by the pool, with a cocktail in hand is what we all want to do when we’re not chained to our desks. There’s little time for that for KELOLAND’s cattlemen who are heading into their busy season. And thanks to their efforts, there’s something to put on the grill this summer. That is unless you don’t have enough to eat.

Ty Eschenbaum is a Board Member with the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Foundation and Lori Dykstra is the Chief Executive Officer of Feeding South Dakota.

They joined us to tell us about their partnership that has put more than 1.3 million pounds of beef on the tables of people experiencing food insecurity.
