SDCA Beef Booths

Each year, SDCA hosts beef booths at Dakotafest and the SD State Fair. These are great opportunities to get involved with helping us promote beef, in addition to being one of SDCA's largest fundraisers. 

DakotaFest is one of the state’s largest farm shows and is held in Mitchell each August.  SDCA’s beef barn can be found in the northwest corner of the grounds and features great roast beef sandwiches.

The SD State Fair, held in Huron every year over Labor Day weekend, is a perpetual family favorite.  SDCA’s beef booth can be found in the southwest corner of the food court and features delicious Ribeye steak sandwiches, in addition to our famous roast beef sandwiches.
