The Sioux Empire Farm Show is proud to host purebred shows/sales for six breeds of cattle: Angus, Charolais, Hereford, Limousin, Red Angus and Simmental.

The champions of each of the breeds will vie for the $12,000 Supreme Row purse sponsored by the Tri-State Neighbor, Wells Fargo Bank and Campbell Supply Co. The Supreme Champion bull and heifer will split the $12,000 purse, with $3,500 going to the consignor and $2,500 going to the buyer. It is expected that nearly 300 head of cattle will be consigned to the shows/sales. The purebred shows/sales take place on Wednesday and Thursday, with the animals on display in the barn until Supreme Row judging Friday morning.

The Sioux Empire Farm Show

Since 1954, the Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce has been sponsoring one of the best farm shows in the upper Midwest. Over the years the show has grown to include the best market and purebred livestock from across the region as well as the latest in agricultural commercial exhibits.

Sioux Falls rolls out the red carpet to welcome these visitors – estimated at more than 30,000 throughout the week. The annual Sioux Empire Farm Show is a great way for South Dakota´s largest city to recognize the impact that agriculture continues to have in our community.
