Iconic duos are plastered throughout history: Scooby and Shaggy, Thelma and Louise, John Deere and green; and Busch Light and rural Iowa. Now, two of those names are teaming up to create a tribute to farmers, while raising money for Farm Rescue.

This week, Anheuser-Busch officially announced limited edition "For the Farmers" John Deere themed Busch Light cans. The special beer cans will be sold across the Midwest May 16-July 3, and $1 from each sale will be be donated to Farm Rescue. Anheuser-Busch says up to a maximum of $100,000 will go to Farm Rescue, and John Deere will then match that donation.

"Farm Rescue is honored to be the beneficiary of this incredible joint effort between Busch Light and John Deere," says Bill Gross, Founder & President, Farm Rescue. "Both companies have been incredible supporters of our mission, and this latest partnership truly solidifies their commitment to American agriculture.

Although farmers only represent one percent of the total population, they have a big responsibility in feeding the world. With the money raised through this one-of-a-kind promotion, Farm Rescue will be able to extend a helping hand to many more farm families in crisis."
