There is no question, calving season can be a tough time in the ranching cycle. The late nights and long hours combined with tired cowboys, muddy pens, and an occasional angry mother cow can make for a long spring. However, with the hardships, spring also brings new life, green grass and the promise of another year ahead. Our talented BEEF Daily readers submitted calves and cowboy photos from this year's calving season for our spring photo contest.
