South Dakota Farmers and Ranchers Welcome Bryan Adams with Beef Bucks

Posted: 2/22/2010

 On Monday, February 22, singer Bryan Adams will perform at the Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls.  While Mr. Adams is best-known for his three decades of hit songs, he has also gained attention for his support of the "Meat-Free Mondays" initiative. In recognition of the role meat production plays in South Dakota, Ag United has provided Mr. Adams with a "Beef Bucks" gift certificate good for purchase of a beef entrée at local restaurants during his stay.  We hope he or his band members enjoy a great meal courtesy of our state's farmers and ranchers.  The letter sent to Adams is below.  You can Read the full news release here.

HAND DELIVERIED:  Sioux Falls Washington Pavilion 

Dear Mr. Adams: 

Agriculture United for South Dakota would like to extend our warmest welcome to you and your band members to Sioux Falls.  We hope you find your visit to South Dakota to be both enjoyable and rewarding.   I know that many are looking forward to your performance at the Pavilion next week. 

From Rapid City to Sioux Falls and points in between more than 15,000 farm and ranch families raise beef cattle to provide a safe, affordable and nutritional source of protein for families across our state and across the world. 

We hope that you will take advantage of your time in Sioux Falls next Monday to enjoy dinner at one of the many fine establishments located within walking distance of the Washington Pavilion.  We have enclosed a Beef Bucks certificate that is good at any restaurant or retail store for the purchase of a beef entrée.  A list of downtown Sioux Falls restaurants is available at or by calling 605-338-4009. 

Once again, welcome to South Dakota! 



Steve Dick
