The past couple of weeks have been busy on BEEF Daily Blog, as we have celebrated the beautiful winter season and the cowboys who work hard, no matter the weather, to tend to the cattle in their care. With a record number of entries in our first contest of 2012, we narrowed it down to 10 finalists, and you helped us select our champions. Without further ado, let’s announce the winners!
Congratulations to Erica Boyer, “Trudging Through The Snow.”
Reserve champion honors go to Carrie Ludwig with “Frosty Wire.”
Honorable mentions go to Kimmel Dalley, Erin Smith and David Schafer. It was a close contest; congratulations to our champions! Our winners will take home $100 in VISA Beef Bucks courtesy of the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Auxiliary. As promised, three voters will also receive Beef Bucks. Congratulations to our lucky three: Mark Greenstone, Susan Doverspike and Diana Steinmetz.

With so many of us enjoying mild winters this year, the entries weren’t as snow-covered as in years past. Today, I’m curious, how the weather is in your neck of the woods? Are you getting any snow or rain? Are you concerned about moisture heading into spring? Please, offer us a weather report in the comments section below.
