SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – Ag United for South Dakota is hosting their annual luncheon on Tuesday, December 14 at 11:45 a.m. at the Sioux Falls Convention Center. Dr. Luke Minion CEO of Pipestone is the guest speaker. We will also be recognizing the eighth annual Agvocate of the Year, an award for an outstanding supporter of Ag United for South Dakota.
We are happy to welcome Dr. Luke Minion as our luncheon keynote speaker. Dr Minion is the CEO of PIPESTONE, Chairman of the Board for Wholestone Farms and Chairman of the Board for PIPESTONE. He will share insights on how the pork industry and pork producers have managed through the past 18 months, as well as talk about the recently announced Wholestone Farms pork processing facility that is being planned for Sioux Falls.
For 17 years, Ag United has worked to connect our state’s farm and ranch families with the consumers and decision makers that influence the future of our industry. In 2021, we reached thousands of South Dakotans with dairy and pork open houses, classroom programs, restaurant crawl events, and participation at popular events like etc. for her expo. Our social media platforms share South Dakota farm and ranch families’ stories throughout the year, and we continue to support families with help for zoning and other county and local hearings for expansion or new construction projects.
It takes an army of volunteers to make our work possible, most importantly the family farmers and ranchers who are willing to host events and take time to tell their stories. We will recognize these volunteers and all of South Dakota’s farm and ranch families. We will also announce the eighth annual Agvocate of the Year award to recognize South Dakota farmers and ranchers for their work in sharing the story of modern farming with the public.
Tickets for this event are complimentary, but an RSVP is required. RSVP by visiting www.agunited.org/events. Registration begins at 11:30 with the luncheon served at 11:45 at the Sioux Falls Convention Center.
