Lamb Bonanza Game Jan. 12 at Frost Arena

Farm Forum

Brookings – The 21st annual South Dakota State University Lamb Bonanza starts at 3 p.m. on Jan. 12 at Frost Arena on the campus of SDSU.

Organizers created the event to showcase SDSU’s support of lamb and wool production in South Dakota, held in conjunction with SDSU men’s basketball.

The South Dakota Sheep Growers’ Association will serve leg-of-lamb sandwiches and lamb spread from 3 to 4 p.m. on the north side of the track at the arena.

SDSU faces Fort Wayne, with the men’s game begins at 4 p.m.

During halftime of the game, six lamb pelts will be auctioned. Four pelts are decorated with the SDSU logo and two feature the SDSU Jackrabbit logo. Proceeds from the sales will provide scholarships to undergraduates in the SDSU Dept. of Animal and Range Sciences and the SDSU Athletic Dept.

The SDSU Dept. of Athletics and the SDSU Dept. of Animal Science, along with the South Dakota Sheep Growers’ Association, are sponsoring the 2013 Lamb Bonanza.
