VOTE NOW: 15 photo finalists depicting hard-working ranchers

VOTE NOW: 15 photo finalists depicting hard-working ranchers

Throughout the month of September, readers have been sending me fantastic images depicting the hard-working beef producers — from infant to elderly — they know and love.

These images have been compiled into a gallery, and you can view the 70 photos of hard-working cattlemen and women by clicking here.

The deadline for submitting photos is now closed, and we’ve narrowed down the entries to 15 finalists. These finalists are eligible to win a $300 voucher for a custom Greeley Hat Works cowboy hat.

Congratulations to our 15 finalists including: Coleman Lay, Donald Graham, Ryan Cone, Lindsay Miller, Max Carlisle, Connie Thompson, Lacey Sabatka, Tierra Kessler, Marlyse Cunningham, Sandra Richelderfer, Don Benedict, Connie Mitchell, Tanna White, and JaNeil Anderson.
