65th annual Sioux Empire Farm Show runs through Saturday

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - The 65th annual Sioux Empire Farm Show kicked-off Tuesday afternoon at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls.

The event showcases the area's best in pure-bred and market livestock Tuesday through Saturday.

The commercial exhibit part of the show runs Wednesday through Friday at the Sioux Falls Arena and Convention Center.

It gives farmers the chance to check out the latest equipment and products in the industry, but the show is also an educational opportunity.

"Just come out and see what it's like," Sioux Empire Farm Show co-chair Larry Healy said. "Some of the kids don't know where eggs, steaks come from, so now's a great time. Family's bring your kids out and show them what it is."

Thirty-thousand visitors are expected to come through Sioux Falls for the farm show, bringing more than $3 million into the city.
