The past couple of weeks, we have been celebrating the abundance of fall, with beautiful photographs from farms and ranches across the country. I'm excited to announce the finalists for the BEEF Daily Fall Harvest Photography Contest! Now, it’s your turn to weigh in on your favorites. I'm in awe of your amazing photography skills, your passion for agriculture and your eagerness to participate in this community blog; it sure makes for an exciting contest! Thanks to all who participated and shared their farm memories will all of us.
To vote: The finalists are numbered from 1-10 (top to bottom); select your favorite photo by its number and leave your vote in the comments section. Voting will be open until Nov. 24, with winners to be announced on Thanksgiving Day.
