Attendees are invited to visit with graduate students about their projects. The formal program will follow at 10:00 a.m. Steve Rommereim, recently elected president of the National Pork Board, will deliver a keynote address titled “A year in the life of a pig farmer.” Rommereim is the owner, operator and manager of Highland Swine in Alcester, S.D. He has served as a South Dakota delegate to the Pork Industry Forum since 2003 and previously served as president of both the South Dakota Pork Producers Association and Agriculture United for South Dakota. A U.S. Pork Industry’s Pig Farmer of Tomorrow, Adam Krause from Clear Lake, S.D., will discuss being a spokesperson for the pig farming industry through personal contact and social media. After a lunch sponsored by the South Dakota Pork Producers Council, SDSU Extension Swine Specialist Bob Thaler will speak about his experience as a Fulbright Scholar in Viet- nam earlier this year. The SDSU swine faculty will also highlight some of their recently completed and ongoing research. This year’s SDSU Swine Day celebrates the second anniversary of the grand opening of the new SDSU Swine Education and Research Facility and Wean-to-Finish Research Barn in Brookings. Officially dedicated in October of 2016, SDSU Department of Animal Science researchers continue to utilize the $7.4 million facility to investigate issues relevant to the swine industry.

Habitat for Humanity partners with low to moderate income individuals to help them build or improve a place they can call home. Working alongside volunteers, Habitat partner families put in hundreds of “sweat equity” hours as they help build or renovate their own homes. Once the home is complete, the partners will repay Habitat for expenses incurred through an affordable mortgage or an affordable home repair loan. The self-empowerment created by this opportunity helps homeowner families eliminate barriers to a better, healthier, more financially stable life. We believe that with a little help, we all have the potential to stand on our own. Likewise, to grow and prosper, Yankton County and the surrounding areas need housing options in a wide range of prices to match income levels. Habitat’s affordable housing solutions help to meet that need by building and repairing homes in partnership with families living below the area’s median income. According to affordable housing online 35.77% of Yankton County residents are cost burdened and pay more than 30% of their monthly income for housing. With a median rent of $578, that means that a family must make at least $1,903 per month in order to stay at 30%.

Volunteer group from Baldwin Filters where homeowner is employed. Adequate housing makes a positive impact on a family and our local economy. When housing is affordable, low to moderate income families have money to put nutritious meals on the table, receive necessary medical care and provide for reliable daycare all while increasing their wealth. The average net worth of a renter is $4,800. That net worth increases to $100,000 for an average Habitat homeowner. Research shows that housing stability has profound effects on effects on childhood development and performance. Decent affordable housing also fosters local economic growth. Habitat spends on an average $120,000 in our local community for supplies, materials, land and sub-contract labor, which causes a ripple effect in our community. In 2016, Habitat homeowners contributed over $41,620 in tax revenue and spent $24,385 in insurance costs to our local insurance agents. So, when measuring impact of adequate housing, research shows that the impact is realized within the life of a family and our community. Since 1996, Habitat for Humanity of Yankton County has served forty-four families through our homeownership program and seven families through our home repair program.
