Steve & Diane Hammer, owners of the Elkton Locker, brought home seven awards, including Best in' Show, from the South Dakota Association of Meat Processors conference held at SDSU on Aug. 17 & 18.

Every August .the meat processors gather for their annual conference and competition. Judges' award titles and plaques in 10 different categories after individual butcher's recipes are sampled and judged by a panel of ten. Around 20 meat processors from around the state participate in the competition.

The Elkton locker brought home awards in the following Categories: Champion: Whole bone in Ham; Champion: bacon; Grand Champion: jerky; Grand Champion: dried beef; and Grand Champion: ring bologna. The Locker also won Best of Show for their ring bologna. Dr. Wolf of SDSU was one of the judges and said, "The ring bologna was unanimously selected by the panel of judges of that class. The other judges kept coming over to get a sample. Everyone was raving about how great it was!" He also mentioned that the judges thought the ring bologna would go well with pancakes as it is a sweeter sausage.

The conference features demonstrations and seminars and includes a trade show with several booths tailored to the meat processing industry. The Elkton Locker provides custom butchering service along with a full line of beef and pork cuts, gourmet cheeses, sausages and dried meat products. Meat items may be ordered if it's not on hand, although there is plenty to choose from on display in the glass case.

The Elkton Locker will also have their product at the State Fair on August 30 for the South Dakota Value Added Products Day.
