Livestock entry fees waived at annual Sioux Empire Fair


Associated Press - August 2, 2019

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The Sioux Empire Fair is waiving entry fees for its livestock competition for the first time in its history.  Organizers point to the increasing financial losses being experienced by South Dakota farmers and ranchers caused by tariffs imposed by President Trump on US/foreign agriculture trade. 

The ongoing impact from severe late winter and early spring weather is also a contributing factor in the decision to waive entry fees. 

It's the 80th anniversary for the fair which starts this weekend. Hundreds will showcase their cows, lambs, goats and pigs they've been raising in hopes of taking home some prize money. Many show more than one animal, so fair officials say the fees can add up quickly.
