With a full calendar of summer contests and prizes, I thought it was time for a sweepstakes drawing. If you have missed the previous contests, you should check out our photography and story teller  winners. However, instead of a contest, where participants are judged on their entries, this sweepstakes is a random drawing for cool prizes. The sweepstakes will run until noon on June 29, 2009, and it's really simple to enter. Two winners will be selected to win the book, Cowboy Ethics, by well-known agriculture authors and photographers, James P. Owen and David R. Stoecklein . Don't miss your chance to enter and be a part of an ongoing dialogue about beef industry issues!
To enter, participants should answer the question:
"What is the biggest issue facing the beef industry today?"
Leave your answers, along with your name and state, in the comments section, so entries can be shared with the BEEF community. I can't wait to hear your responses!
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A purchase does not improve your chances of winning. Contest open to legal residents of 50 United States and the District of Columbia, who are 18 or older. To enter, answer the question in the comments section, along with your name and state. All entries must be received by noon Monday, June 29, 2009. Void outside of the 50 United States and District of Columbia and where prohibited by law. For the Full Rules, link here .
