Ranchers share photos of their best genetics in action

A mama cow that weans the heaviest calf each year, a proven sire with a strong set of EPDs, a set of finished steers making the grade -- producers are sharing photographs of their best genetics in action. Check out the collection!

It's 365 days of work and one paycheck -- that's the reality of life as a rancher.

However, the joy of the cattle business isn't just on sale day; it's making mating decisions, seeing those breeding choices come to fruition during calving season, watching those genetics develop as weaned calves, collecting carcass information on finished steers, enjoying a well-marbled steak and every moment in between. We want to see your best genetics in action. It could be stout calf nursing at his mother's side, a powerful herd bull covering a group of cows or an old matriarch who seems to always have a standout calf each year.

We invite our readers to share photos of their top genetics in action for a chance to win prizes from our contest sponsor, Boehringer Ingelheim SynchSure + Cystorelin 2018. Our top 4 photos will win a $50 VISA gift card; plus, three voters will win BEEF hats.

THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. HELP US SELECT OUR WINNER BY VOTING HERE.
