VOTE: Farm Boy’s Spring Calving Photography Contest


Our editors have selected the top 10 finalists; now, it’s your turn to choose our champions! Two winning photos, plus three voters, will take home gift certificates courtesy of Farm Boy and Farm Girl Apparel!

Calving season is a busy time for cattlemen -- with late-night checks on first-calf heifers, weighing and tagging new babies, troubleshooting when problems arise, keeping the veterinarian on speed-dial, checking the pastures for scour troubles, treating sick calves when necessary and gearing up for spring planting.

This time of year, cattlemen are exhausted from the extra hours and excited about the new crop of calves on the ground. And, we are celebrating this time of year with a photo contest! Our editors have selected the top 10 finalists, and now it’s time for you to select our champions!

Congratulations to the following finalists: Kyley Devoe, Mickie Hebbert, Elizabeth Seamands, Noel L. Kubat DVM, Meghan Anderson, Cathy Choate, Darcy Sexson, Randolph Kuhn, Marcus Creasy and Cynthia Cranton.

Help us choose our champion and reserve photographs by choosing the number of your favorite photo from the finalist gallery and leaving it in the comments section below. The number can be found on the right-hand side of each photo.

#5 clearly a creatively presented photo. I love those little Red Angus calves. Fuzzy little ginger babies are cute.
