State's largest ag organization heads to stock show
South Dakota Farm Bureau - January 23, 2018

RAPID CITY, SD - South Dakota Farm Bureau (SDFB) will be part of the 60th Anniversary Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo taking place at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center and Central States Fairgrounds January 26 – February 4, 2018 in Rapid City.

Livestock shows and sales, professional rodeos, trade show and educational activities are just a few of the events on tap at the event that draws close to 300,000 attendees during the 10 day show.

Also during stock show,  SDFB Women's Leadership Team (WLT) will offer educational activities for area middle school students. The program  titled "Kids Take Stock Event" includes hands-on educational activities on beef and wheat.

All of the attending teachers will receive a copy of the book titled, "Visiting Grandpa and Grandma's Farm", written by members of the WLT as part of the SDFB centennial year celebration. Pennington/Jackson County is sponsoring the books for the event.

"Less than two percent of the American population is directly involved in production agriculture. Our members believe it is important to educate students where food does come from," said Renae Gebhart, WLT coordinator. "We are excited to again be part of this big event."

SDFB will be in LaCroix Hall at the Civic Center in booths 17 and 18. The SDFB Young Farmers & Ranchers will be selling raffle tickets for two Henry Silver Boy Rifles. The rifle drawing will take place at the SDFB Annual Convention, November 16-17, 2018.

A special event at stock show is a Rancher Appreciation Social, sponsored by the Pennington/Jackson County Farm Bureau, set for  Monday, January 29. Tickets are available at the  SDFB booth. Additional sponsors for the social include Meade/Ziebach and Butte/Harding/Lawrence County Farm Bureaus.
