As in previous years, five nominees will be chosen among all candidates and honored live at the Women in Ag event that will be held in the Dakotafest Education Buildin during the 2023 show in Mitchell.

The Women in Ag event features a female ag speaker and concludes with the presentation of a $1,000  cash prize to one finalist named as the Dakotafest Woman Farmer/Rancher of the Year.  

VeaBea Thomas was named the 2022 Dakotafest Woman Farmer/Rancher of the Year last August for  her commitment to her farm and ranch in Harrold, S.D.  

Dakotafest takes place Aug. 15-17, 2023, and the award is presented at the Women in Ag event on  Thursday, Aug. 17 at 10:30 a.m. Central.
