Vote now for your favorite “Next Generation Females” photograph

Voting is now open for BEEF and Boehringer Ingelheim’s “Next Generation Females” photography contest. Choose your four favorites daily until March 11 and be entered to win a BEEF cap.

One of the best parts about blogging for BEEF is having the opportunity to host photography contests throughout the year. It’s a great way to get to know our readers.

Your images show us a glimpse of your lives in the cattle business. It’s fun to see regional production differences and a variety of cattle breeds through your photographs. It’s even more enjoyable to see ranching families working together and making memories in these images.

Our latest photography contest is titled, “Next Generation Females.” Sponsored by our friends at Boehringer Ingelheim, the theme was designed to highlight the outstanding heifers and cows on your ranches. Looking through the beautiful collection of reader-submitted images, which included stunning photographs of brood cows, baby calves, cowgirls and replacement heifers, we narrowed down the entries to 15 finalists.

While all the images were fantastic, we felt these finalists truly captured the theme of this contest. Congratulations to our top 15:

  1. 2 Bar mama by Caitlin Jaworowski
  2. A perfect view by Jeff Gotschall
  3. Battling the elements by Taylor Hunt
  4. Bonding by Delanie Bartell
  5. Momma’s Love by Kinsey Kiker
  6. My favorite heifer by Kristy Dykes

  12. Polly’s Love by Dawn Hauge
