Mark Zuckerberg Visits South Dakota Ranch, Underground Lab
PIEDMONT, S.D. (AP) – Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has visited a 2,500-acre cattle ranch and an underground research facility in western South Dakota.
Zuckerberg did a Facebook live broadcast Wednesday from deep underground at the Sanford Underground Research Facility. In the livestream, Zuckerberg said he hopes people watching think about going into scientific research.
He wrote in a Facebook post about the ranch family that he thinks people should understand where their food comes from. He says a lot of cattle come from South Dakota, noting that the state is experiencing drought.
Zuckerberg has said he plans this year to visit every state that he hasn’t spent time in before.
