My family celebrated Mother’s Day over the weekend with church and brunch. My sisters and I bought Mom  flowers for her flower boxes, and the sunny weather was the perfect finishing touch for a pleasant Sunday spent with loved ones. Even though this time of year has us running from sunrise to sundown – planting, getting ready to move pairs to pasture, AIing cows, and getting the garden ready – we still can make time to show the people we care about that we love them.
With Mother’s Day behind us and Father’s Day around the corner, now is the perfect time to pay tribute to the people who have raised us , who have helped shape us into strong individuals, and made our lives so fulfilling. So, whether that’s a mom or dad, a brother or sister, a best friend or a beloved cattle dog or horse, this month’s contest is called, “Ranch Sweethearts.”
To enter the BEEF Daily Ranch Sweethearts  Photo Contest, simply send me your best photo with the name of the individual in the image, along with your name and mailing address. Only one entry/person will be eligible to win prizes, but feel free to send several my way to include in the gallery. Email your entries to [email protected].
The contest will be open until May 24. After that, our editors will narrow the photographs down to the 10 finalists who will be announced on May 27. Voting will run until May 31, and the winners will be named on June 3.
This month’s contest has some great prizes. The grand champion photographer will receive a voucher for a free pair of boots from Roper , while the reserve champion honoree will win a $75 gift certificate from my sister’s business, Cowgirl Crush . Voters also have the chance to take home fun prizes, as three voters will be selected at random to receive a copy of my children’s book, “Levi’s Lost Calf.” 
All the entries will be compiled into a gallery to posted on beefmagazine.com as I receive them, so be sure to check back frequently to view all of the reader’s entries.
Good luck and thanks for your participation!
