Spring is here, and, for many, that means new beginnings. The pastures are greening up, the snow is melting and baby calves are everywhere. In honor of this wonderful time of year, I'm announcing the 2010 BEEF Daily Baby Calf Photo Contest. I'm looking for your favorite photos from calving time. It could be a rancher carrying a calf through the mud to the dry barn, it could be a baby calf with his mother, or it could be your kids feeding a bottle calf. Send your favorite photo and be entered to win fun prizes!
The contest is open until Wednesday, April 21, 2010, where I will choose 10 finalists to be voted on by you in the remaining days of April. Two winners will be selected. Grand Champion photographer will receive a copy of Great Ranches of the West by Jim Keen, and Reserve Champion photographer will win a notecard set appropriately named to fit the theme of this contest, "Mother and Child," by David Stoecklin.
It's easy to participate. Simply send in a photo with your name and mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let's celebrate calving season together! I can't wait to see your photographs! Best of luck to all entrants.
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. A purchase does not improve your chances of winning. Contest open to legal residents of 50 United States and the District of Columbia, who are 18 or older. To enter, send in a cattle photo with description, along with mailing address to: email@example.com. All entries must be received by Wednesday, April 21, 2010. Void outside of the 50 United States and District of Columbia and where prohibited by law. For the Full Rules, link here.
BEEF Daily Quick Fact: 13 of the 29 lean beef cuts have, on average, only one more gram of saturated fat than a skinless chicken breast per 3-ounce serving. Yet, beef's leanest cuts have eight times more vitamin B12, six times more zinc and three times more iron than a skinless chicken breast. (Source: Utah Beef Council)
