Prairie Farmer is celebrating the loyal companions that are often the first to greet company at the farm. Whether your dog likes to ride shotgun, herd livestock or protect the farmstead, all play an important role in making the farm feel like home. Readers have submitted their favorite photos and stories that make their farm dog special.

Congratulations to our finalists, all featured here in this slideshow.

Help us select our champions by voting daily until April 10 at 11:59 p.m. Winners will be announced in the June issue of Prairie Farmer. Vote for your favorite farm dog by clicking the link here!
