HURON, S.D. – The South Dakota State Fair Foundation is excited to announce Dakotaland Feeds has pledged $25,000 to the ‘Raise The SHED’ Fundraising Campaign.

The SHED will be the new home for Open Class Sheep at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds in Huron. The SHED will serve as a multi-purpose facility, including a show arena and educational center. The indoor educational center will provide a place for interactive learning about the sheep industry, opportunities in agriculture, and our state’s rich agricultural history.

The fundraising goal is $3 million. The total project cost is approximately $8 million.

The former Open Class Sheep Barn has been demolished, and project planning and design for The SHED is underway. A groundbreaking ceremony is expected to be held during the 2024 State Fair.
