Reaves Technology and Innovation Center debuts at Dakotafest

Farm Forum

Reaves Buildings is excited to announce the development of the Reaves Technology and Innovation Center on the grounds at Dakotafest. The 3-building campus will house 24 leaders in ag technology, a 250 person gathering space for events, and an expanded display building for Reaves Buildings and their vendors.

Managed by IDEAg Group, Dakotafest is held in August each year in Mitchell, S.D. With over 30 percent growth in attendance in the last 3 years, it has quickly become one of the area’s largest and largest-attended agricultural show in the upper Midwest. Nearly 500 vendors are expected this year, as well.

As South Dakota’s largest manufacturer of engineered wood frame buildings, Reaves Buildings has, for over thirty years, demonstrated their commitment to agriculture in South Dakota and the surrounding region. Daryl Christensen, VP Reaves Buildings, states, “Reaves Buildings is privileged to continue our commitment to the agricultural community and Dakotafest with this investment in the Reaves Buildings Technology and Innovation Campus. Equally exciting is the potential for the promotion of on-going education, exchange of information and ability to showcase the advancements being made in agriculture. We are grateful to our vendors and suppliers and IDEAg for their support in making the Reaves Buildings Technology and Innovation Campus a reality.”
