SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — A new agriculture center will be unveiled at the W.H. Lyon Fairgrounds in Sioux Falls when the Sioux Empire Fair opens next week.
The $300,000 Pipestone Discovery Barn was constructed this summer. It will have bottle calves, an area to mix rations to feed baby pigs, two dairy cows that are scheduled to have their calves during the fair, eggs ready to hatch chicks, and other educational displays.
The 60-by-150-foot facility was built by Pipestone Holdings, a veterinary service and swine management company in Pipestone, Minnesota.
Fair manager Scott Wick tells the Sioux Falls Argus Leader (argusne.ws/Xt2bz5) that the addition is an excellent project that falls in place with the intended use for fair land.
