Rapid City, S.D. – According to the state officials, the SHED will be the new home for Open Class Sheep at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds in Huron and 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 “Raise The SHED” campaign includes several donor opportunities for all donation levels including show arena naming rights, donor wall sponsorships, and a wool wall.
The former Open Class Sheep Barn has been demolished, and project planning and design for The SHED is underway.
