Winter Photo Winners Announced!


Today, we announce the winners of the “Winter On The Ranch” photo contest.


With more than 200 entries in our “Winter On The Ranch” photo contest, it was hard to narrow it down to 15 finalists. With the help of 265 readers, our finalists were evaluated and two rose to the top. It’s time to announce our winners!

Congratulations to our 15 finalists. You can check out the gallery here!

Of the 15, our grand champion photographer is Kim Fritzemeier with “Blizzard of Oz.”

In a close second place, our reserve champion photographer is Gaye Smith with “Hungry Girls.”

As promised, four voters were randomly selected to win BEEF caps. Our winners are Jaclyn Martin, Shanda Kay, Dwight Hofland and Hank Hafliger.

By the way, BEEF Senior Associate Editor Jamie Purfeerst has created a video of our 15 finalists. Check it out below.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our contest, both by submitting photos and voting for our winners. Stay tuned for details on our March photo caption contest.

Thanks so much to Beef Magazine for this opportunity. I know that I "got by with a little help from my friends" as the song goes. But more than one friend commented about how the whole set of photographs told the story of how farmers and ranchers are committed to being stewards for their livestock. The contest also highlighted the challenges and rewards of caring for our animals. Thanks, Beef Magazine, for that opportunity to tell our story through photos, to expose new people to the beef industry and, yes, for the great prize, too!
