There’s still time to enter our fall photo contest!

Sept. 22 marks the Fall Equinox, and as the autumn season officially gets underway, today is the last day of the year that we’ll have equal amounts of day and night. As the days get shorter, it’s crunch time to get our tasks on the ranch accomplished.

This is such a busy time with hauling manure, fall harvest, weaning, pregnancy checking cows, and winterizing the ranch, it seems like we’re never short on something to do around our ranch. Despite the hustle and bustle of the season, we’re taking a minute to truly appreciate the beauty of the fall season with a photo contest, “Cattle & Colors.”

We kicked off the contest last week, and we’ve already received some gorgeous photographs depicting life on the ranch during the autumn season.

Check out reader entries for the “Cattle & Colors” contest here.

Hopefully the photos inspire you and remind you to slow down a little bit during this busy season to enjoy the beauty of fall on the ranch.

There’s still time to enter the contest and be eligible to win a $100 or $50 VISA gift card. The deadline to enter is 8 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 26. From there, we’ll narrow down the entries to 10 finalists and let you choose our winners! Champions will be announced on Oct. 3. Good luck to all who enter and thank you for participating!
