Readers showcase their next generation females

As calving season gets underway, ranchers will watch as their cows mother newborn calves. Fertile, gentle but protective, good-milking and nurturing, these mama cows are the foundation of every ranch. This photo contest celebrates these females and honors the work they do throughout the year.

EDITOR'S NOTE: This contest is now closed. Please help us select a winner by voting here. You can vote once daily until March 11.

We are excited to announce a brand new contest in partnership with CYSTORELIN and SYNCHSURE from Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. titled, "Next Generation Females."

We will be accepting entries from now until 8 a.m. CST on Feb. 27.

In this contest, we are seeking images of the best females on your ranch. It could be a group of replacement heifers you're developing or the matriarch old cow who consistently raises a big bull calf each year. We want to see the present and future of your herd by highlighting outstanding maternal genetics in beef operations across the country.
