My favorite group of young agriculture professionals, the National Beef Ambassadors, are hard at work promoting the beef industry to consumers on behalf of America's farmers and ranchers. With their latest effort, they are calling for your participation. The 2010 National Beef Ambassador Team is hosting a photography contest, "Farmers and Ranchers Care," on their Facebook Fan Page, and they want you to post your favorite photo that exemplifies this theme. The photos are already pouring in on their Fan Page, which has more than 1,500 fans already! To enter is simple; read on for details. Great job, ambassadors, in sharing our beef story! I'm so proud to be an alumni of this amazing group!
About the contest: Have you heard something in the media lately that has made you think more about the importance of YOUR agriculture story? The National Beef Ambassadors, funded in part by the beef checkoff, can help you spread your message. The “Farmers and Ranchers Care” Earth Day Photo Contest will help you share with consumers and fellow producers how you, as cattle ranchers and beef producers, care for the environment in your ranching practices! This contest will begin on Saturday, March 20th, National Agriculture Day. In order to share the importance of the beef industry’s positive involvement with the environment, you will have the chance to share your photos on the National Beef Ambassador Facebook page.
Step 1: Become a fan of the National Beef Ambassadors on Facebook.
Step 2: Upload your photo to the National Beef Ambassador Facebook page showcasing how you, as a beef producer, are involved in helping the environment.
