Vote for your favorite “Picture Perfect Pairs” photograph today!

Check out our top 20 finalists in the “Picture Perfect Pairs” photo contest and vote each day to help your favorite photographer make it into our top four!

Without question, our BEEF readers are pretty proud of their cattle. This love for cattle and passion for the beef industry is quite evident as you browse through the collection of stunning images in our newest gallery, “Picture Perfect Pairs.”

In the last couple of weeks, we have celebrated the summer grazing season and our beloved cow-calf pairs with a photography contest sponsored by CYSTORELIN and SYNCHSURE from Boehringer Ingelheim.

You can view the entire collection of reader-submitted images by clicking here.

After much deliberation, we narrowed down the finalists to 20 photographs, and now we would like to enlist your help in choosing four champions.
