Readers have submitted photos of hard-working ranchers doing what they do best -- caring for their livestock and being stewards of the land. This gallery is a collection of those photos. These photos are eligible to win September's photo contest and take home a $300 hat from Greeley Hat Works. Check this gallery often as it will be updated daily with new entries.
Here is what you need to know about the contest:
1. Contest theme: Celebrating America’s cattle producers
During the month of September, we are seeking photos of hard-working American cattlemen and women. Whether it’s sorting cattle, feeding calves, fixing fence, putting up hay, hauling manure or any other task cattle producers tackle in their jobs, this photo contest aims to capture the essence of a working ranch.
2. Contest prizes
Greeley Hat Works will give a customized cowboy hat to the grand and reserve champion photographers, valued at $300. Plus, we will have three western photography coffee table books to gift to three randomly selected voters who help choose our champions.
