Goodbye 2015; hello 2016! PLUS: Cowboy Christmas winners

When the clock strikes midnight this evening, we’ll say goodbye to 2015 and hello to 2016. You might have noticed that today’s BEEF Daily newsletter was rich with content recapping the year and the best stories, photo galleries and most-read blogs of 2015.

2015 was certainly an interesting year, and BEEF helped capture the moments that were most important to our cattle industry readers. We covered hot topics like COOL and WTO. We kept you updated on the market outlook and consumer trends. We offered new ideas to increase profitability, better manage your cow herd, and create a lasting legacy that will carry through to the younger generations. Plus, we captured it all in beautiful photographs submitted by readers through contests sponsored by Greeley Hat Works.

As we say goodbye to 2015, we also need to wrap up our final photography contest. We received 70-plus images from readers and narrowed the entries down to 15 finalists. From there, you helped us select our champions by voting daily. We’ve tallied up the votes, and congratulations goes to our champions including:

Grand Champion: Carol Greet with “Wyoming Santa”

Reserve Champion: Gwen Shepperson with “Pride and Joy”

Both Greet and Shepperson will receive a $300 voucher for a custom Greeley Hat Works hat. Plus, as promised, we randomly chose three voters to receive a western photography coffee table book. Our lucky winners are Dave Lewis, Jan Chaney and Kelsey Keith. Thanks to everyone who participated, and I hope your New Year celebrations are safe and joyous. Cheers to 2016!
