First BEEF Daily Summer Contest Starts Today!

For many, the end of school is near, and that means kids are available to help with summer farm work. Usually that means fixing fence, baling hay, chopping and spraying thistles, checking cows or grinding creep feed. For most folks, summer means long days working outside, and very little time for checking your favorite blogs like BEEF Daily. Well, I'm willing to bet you'll make some time to stop by with my summer contests, launching today!
