The annual Sioux Empire Livestock Show is a great way for South Dakota's largest city to celebrate the state’s number one industry, while recognizing the vital impact of agriculture in our lives.

The five-day Show features six purebred cattle shows and sales, with a $12,000 purse (sponsored by Tri-State Neighbor, Wells Fargo Bank, and Campbell’s) that is split between the consignors and the buyers of the Supreme Champion Bull and Heifer, 4-H/FFA Invitational Calf Shows, open shows including Market Swine, Market Lamb, Market Goat, Market Beef, Feeder Steer, Feeder Heifer, and Breeding Heifer Shows, as well as a Draft Horse & Pony Pull and livestock judging contests. Additionally, check out over 60 commercial exhibits, take advantage of the Show’s featured themed days, and don’t miss the Mayor’s Round-Up & Sale of Champions!
