Toured sheep exhibit. Very extensive. Past and present techniques shown. Good explanations and a few souvenirs to purchase. Worth the hour or so that we had to spend there.

We visited here on a weekend and had the place to ourselves. It was fun to see some variety of tractors and tools many of which were invented in SD. Was hoping for some more hands-on exhibits. Good quick stop on campus.
