Autumn is officially here, and ranchers are busy silage cutting, weaning, working calves, preg-checking cows, and getting ready for the upcoming winter months. We’ve captured it all with a fun photo contest, and readers submitted more than 90 images to create a beautiful collection that truly depicts the beauty of the season and life on a cattle ranch.

View the complete gallery here.

From those entries, we narrowed the field to our favorite 15 images. Congratulations to our finalists: Kaylee Miller, Val Oakes, Stacey Francis, Kayla Mercer, Rochelle Schmit, Bill Long, Uriah Swisher, Patti Holmes, Aaron Rees, Terryn Drieling, Rebecca Farha, Laurie Skori, Bailey Bannister, Sheri Erickson and Amelia Fendley.

View the finalists’ gallery here.

Now we need your help in choosing our champions. The grand champion photographer will receive a $100 VISA gift card, and the reserve champion will go home with a $50 VISA gift card, respectively. Plus, we’re giving away three western coffee table books to three randomly selected voters!

Voting will be open until 10 a.m. CST on Oct. 3, and the winners will be announced on Oct. 4.

Thanks to all who participated and helped make this contest one of our best yet!
