NEW Photo Contest: Send Me Your Best “Winter” Images


We’re giving away $200 in VISA gift cards to winning winter photographs!

View the entries submitted here.

With a big winter storm expected to hit my area today, it’s the perfect day to announce a new photo contest. To round out the month of February, I’m looking for “winter-themed” photographs from your ranch.

Whether it’s icicles hanging off the barn roof, a snowy-faced bull, the biggest snow drift you’ve ever seen, or your ranch kids sledding, the possibilities are endless. So, get your creative juices flowing and send me your best winter images.

Prizes: Our grand champion photographer will win a $125 VISA gift card, and reserve champion will take home $75. Once again, our readers will select the champions, and three among those voters will be randomly selected to win BEEF magazine caps.

Deadline: Entries will be accepted until noon on Wednesday, Feb. 27. All photographs will be compiled into a gallery for you to view and enjoy. Voting on the top 10 photos, (selected by BEEF magazine editors) will commence on Feb. 28. See official rules here.

How to enter: It’s easy to enter! Simply send your photos to me at Be sure to include your name, mailing address and title of your entry. We'll begin building a gallery right away, so check back to see the field of entries. Only one entry/person is eligible to win, but feel free to send several photographs to include in our gallery, which you can view here.

As this frigid winter storm hits South Dakota, I’m going to warm up with a cup of coffee today and enjoy looking through your entries. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

By the way, while we’re on the subject of winter, I would like to know about the worst winter storm you’ve seen in your lifetime. Everyone has a story, and I would love to hear yours! Share it in the comments section below.

1976 midwest blizzard, I was just a child of 8 years of age living in Fremont, Ohio. We had snow drifts that went over our 6 foot dog fence. We ran out of bread, milk and other essentials. My father tied a rope around himself, myself and my siblings. We were led by our dog and we walked to the store for groceries. It was the best walk I've ever been on with my Father.
