I feel so fortunate to be invited to share calving season with all of the BEEF Daily readers. My email inbox has been swamped with photo entries from across the country, and I'm definitely impressed by the quality, variety and stories behind each and every single entry in the 2010 BEEF Daily Baby Calf Photo Contest. I want to remind everybody that today is the last day to send in your favorite calving season photo for the contest, so be sure to email your entry today to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More than 115 entries have been sent in so far, and I look forward to many more to pour in as the deadline approaches. The top 10 finalists will be announced on Monday and voting will commence with champion prizes to the fan favorites. See rules and previous postings for details. To view a sampling of the amazing photographs that have been sent in so far, check out the BEEF Daily Baby Calf Album!
If, after you have checked out the baby calf photo album, you still need something to brighten up your Wednesday, I encourage you to check out BEEF's Cartoon Gallery. Catch up with the whole gang of fun beef cattle characters and pass along your favorites to your friends. Everybody could use a good dose of humor throughout their day, and I bet you could, too! Thanks for stopping by!
BEEF Daily Quick Fact: Just one 3-oz. serving of beef supplies 51% of the Daily Value (DV) for protein, 38% of the DV for zinc, and 14% of the DV for iron. It also contributes less than 10% of calories to a 2,000-calorie diet. (Source: Beef Bites)
