We want to meet your farm’s loyal four-legged companion, so we’ve extended the deadline for the 2024 Prairie Farmer Favorite Farm Dog Contest!

  • the best photo of your farm dog

  • 150 words or less about your faithful companion

  • your name, address and phone number

  • your dog’s name, age and breed

Owners of the winning dog will receive:

  • photo shoot with Prairie Farmer of their dog on the farm in action

  • 16-by-20-inch Modern Metals wall art of their favorite farm dog photo

  • cash prize: $100 for first place, $75 for second place and $50 for third place

Winners will be selected through a combination of online voting and staff selection, based on the dog’s utility, companionship, work ethic and value as a family member. Entries will close March 22 at 11:59 p.m.
