Tyson Foods History

John Tyson began selling chickens in 1935, when he bought 50 chickens in Arkansas and sold them at a profit in Chicago.

Tyson Feed & Hatchery, as he named his company two years later, was dedicated to the buying and selling of chickens, and was incorporated in 1947.

Tyson gradually became involved in raising chickens, which gave him more control over what he sold.

In 1957 Tyson opened its first processing plant in Springdale, Arkansas.

In 1963 the company changed its name to Tyson’s Foods and went public on the New York Stock Exchange.

During the 1970’s Tyson built a new egg facility, a computerized feed mill and plant, acquired the poultry division of Wilson Foods, and made numerous acquisitions to improve their business. The company also changed its name once more, this time to Tyson Foods.

In 1995 Tyson was the leading chicken firm in the United States and its shares reached a peak in 1998.

In 2001 Tyson diversified with its $4.4 billion acquisition of IBP, the world’s largest beef processor.

Today Tyson Foods is the world’s second largest processor and marketer of chicken, beef, and pork. Tyson is the second largest food company in the Fortune 500. It has 115,000 employees and had $32.3 billion in revenue in 2011.

It is quite simple really. Get transparent with your Financial Statements included in your 10-Q and 10-K SEC reports. You have known they are faulty since as far back as 2003. In the case of your 10-Q reports, the reader will find it impossible to know what your true Cash and Cash Equivalents balance is. Remember that only your 10-K reports have the paragraph at the bottom of this message. In that particular example from your latest 10-K under Assets you list Cash and Cash Equivalents as 270 million but then there is the negative amount mentioned in the paragraph in the amount of 220 million which means your true Cash and Cash Equivalents is only 50 million. If you go back to the period from 1994 through 2008 this net balance was a negative (not positive). Now. per a member of your IR department this is an ongoing situation not just annual. So, where is the paragraph in the 10-Q reports? Another question does the negative figures include the outstanding checks from the accounts listed in the Asset Section? My guess to that would be no; and hence you have a financial treatment issue among all the other problems this raises).

If I am incorrect, email me back as to why; but do not tell me, like your Corp Sec’y did that all debits and credits are entered (worthless hot air).

Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash equivalents consist of investments in short-term, highly liquid securities having original maturities of three months or less, which are made as part of our cash management activity. The carrying values of these assets approximate their fair values. We primarily utilize a cash management system with a series of separate accounts consisting of lockbox accounts for receiving cash, concentration accounts where funds are moved to, and several zero-balance disbursement accounts for funding payroll, accounts payable, livestock procurement, grower payments, etc. As a result of our cash management system, checks issued, but not presented to the banks for payment, may result in negative book cash balances. These negative book cash balances are included in accounts payable and other current liabilities. At September 29, 2018, and September 30, 2017, checks outstanding in excess of related book cash balances totaled approximately $220 million and $237 million, respectively.

I work at Tyson in Carthage ms from 2006-2010 as a live hanger and while on the job I was caught drinking and I admitted to alcohol consumption instead of them asking me about my problems even though in 2010 I did have alcohol problems I thought like since I’ve been working there that long I ought to been offered help or something like alcohol anonymous but instead of that they just fired me for gross misconduct and I don’t see the reason they put gross misconduct on my record I’m trying to contact them because I want to pursue live hanging again but they will not comply so I’m sending this message to the corporate office just to see can y’all make any sense out of this because I really would like to work for Tyson again I no longer drink and I’ve been sober since 2010 when it happened and I will do whatever I have to do just to be a Tyson member again thanks

Saw your commercial on TV tonight talking about how you don’t give your chickens antibiotics. How do you raise your chickens, are they CAGE FREE, or are they JAMMED IN THOSE TINY CAGES WHERE THEY CANNOT MOVE FOR THE REST OF THEIR LIVES? Also, do you allow your employees to kick them around like footballs and break their legs,wings etc? Like to know if you boil them alive when slaughtering them? Don’t do FALSE ADVERTISING, show the CONSUMER HOW YOU RAISE THEM, NOT JUST WHAT YOU SUPPOSEDLY FEED THEM! I am NOT A MEMBER of any kind of animal group, just a CARING PERSON WITH A BRAIN!!

sent a complaint to Springdale Arizona regarding quality control problem with the Tyson Natural lightly breaded chicken breast strips. Out of entire bag only 3 small pieces were edible rest were tough, chewy and flavorless. You folks need to “taste” your products once in a while. The chicken in that bag was so inconsistent that I probably won’t trust another Tyson product for a long time.

Do you really think AR stands for Arizona?

I am inquiring if by any way possible your company can help support this ministry. This sponsorship is greatly need to help one more hungry child or person with at least one meal a day.

I’ve been working for Tyson Foods for two years and it was going great. Them people at TDC Rogers AR are wasting foods. I mean as a person who did inspection and make sales(rework), I was very surprised by the way they dumped more than 2000 lbs of meat. I mean why not feed the children in the streets of Chicago? I even cried that I saw two kids on commercial in Jamaica fighting over a piece of meat. I was filled with pressurized air when I saw all these doXXXXentaries about Hunger. Can you ask the government to help you load all these foods and fly them over across the Atlantic ocean to Africa and down to South America. Can you help fight hunger in this world??
