ABERDEEN, S.D. – Agtegra Cooperative has committed a financial pledge to the ‘Raise The SHED’ fundraising campaign. The SHED will be the new home for open class sheep at the South Dakota State Fairgrounds 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.

“Agtegra is proud to support The SHED and the opportunities it will provide the South Dakota agriculture industry through events held both at the South Dakota State Fair and throughout the year on the fairgrounds,” states Agtegra’s CEO Jason Klootwyk. “This agricultural education center will have a positive impact on our state and sheep exhibitors will have a dedicated show space once again.”

Agtegra Cooperative’s community engagement strategy is focused on ag education, food security and health and safety to build a farmer-owned cooperative that is strong, stable, dependable and local.
