HURON — The South Dakota Farmers Union donated 800 pounds of Swheat Scoop-brand cat litter to the Beadle County Humane Society in Huron.

Swheat Scoop litter is made from non-food grade wheat harvested in the Midwest. It’s an environmentally friendly product that is all natural and contains no chemicals. The product is made by Farmers Union Industries, a Minnesota-based company affiliated with South Dakota Farmers Union.

South Dakota Farmers Union Vice President Wayne Soren of Lake Preston said the organization wanted to help the local humane society because it gets no funding from the Humane Society of the United States.

“There’s a misconception that the Humane Society of the United States is somehow affiliated with local humane societies and that’s just not the case,” Soren said. “The local Beadle County Humane Society needs our help and we were more than happy to provide this litter to them.”

The 800 pounds of litter was purchased by South Dakota Farmers Union and was delivered to the Beadle County Humane Society in early December. Swheat Scoops is available locally at Coborn’s in Huron.
