15 “Bellied up to the feedbunk” photo contest finalists announced

In March, we’ve been focusing on cattle nutrition with our photography contest entitled, “Bellied up to the feedbunk,” sponsored by Greeley Hat Works. Readers from across the country have entered eye-popping photographs of cattle grazing on pasture or chomping on hay, calves learning to eat in the creep feeder, replacement heifers bellied up to the feed bunk, and feeder cattle waiting for their chow to flow from the feed truck.

With more than 70 entries, this gallery is perfect to share on social media as it showcases the U.S. beef production story from pasture to plate. This collection of photographs highlights beef nutrition, responsible feeding programs, and healthy, happy cattle.

Narrowing the field to 15 finalists was difficult, but they are: Vera Schultz, Lauren Neale, Michaela Mann, Patty Fodge, Jodi Weber, Miranda Reiman, Katrina Huffstutler, Trish Kellen, Marty Sis, Joanna Lee, Joan Ruskamp, Alissa Sanderson, Ashley Stokes, Jay Olsen, and Connie Thompson.
