Why you should participate in the Mayor’s Round-Up and Sale of Champions

FUN!
Return to your agricultural roots or learn more about one of South Dakota’s largest industries. Either way, you can enjoy the camaraderie of hundreds of folks from Sioux Falls area businesses. Get together with your friends and co-workers for a great prime rib dinner and to support agriculture.

LOCAL RECOGNITION
When you purchase livestock at the Mayor’s Round-Up and Sale of Champions, your company will be recognized in advertisements in the Argus Leader, Tri-State Neighbor and Chamber News. Business representatives who bid on the Grand and Reserve Champions market livestock for each animal species will have their photos included in the ads.

SUPPORT THE VISITOR INDUSTRY
The growing Sioux Empire Farm Show draws exhibitors from more than 20 states and brings more than 30,000 people to Sioux Falls annually. An estimated $3 million is brought into the greater community through the five-day show.

SUPPORT THE AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY
Agriculture is South Dakota’s No. 1 industry, generating an annual revenue of $25.6 billion. By participating, you show your support for the regional agricultural community.

SUPPORT THE SIOUX EMPIRE FARM SHOW
The Sale of Champions is a big incentive for producers to attend the Sioux Empire Farm Show. In 2017, more than $75,000 was paid out to 25 livestock producers in cash awards and auction bids. By showing financial support yourself or through your business, you are able to support agriculture and promote the region’s largest market and purebred livestock show.

SUPPORT EDUCATION
A live and silent auction will take place to support a college scholarship for an ag exhibitor who has shown at the Sioux Empire Farm Show.
