Have you sent in your fabulous farm dog for Prairie Farmer’s Favorite Farm Dog contest? You’ve got until 8 a.m. Monday. Here’s how to enter.

You’ve got just one weekend left to enter your dog in Prairie Farmer’s 2021 Favorite Farm Dog contest! Send us your best photo of your farm dog, with a few words about what makes him or her your most faithful companion. Entries close at 8 a.m. March 1 (Monday).

To enter, email us your photo and tell us, in 150 words or less, what makes your dog the perfect canine candidate. Please include your name, address and phone number, plus your dog’s name, age and breed.

Winners will be chosen based on a combination of online voting and editorial voting, which will be based on the dog’s utility, companionship, work ethic and value as a family member.

Owners of the winning dog will receive a complete photo shoot of their dog on the farm, on the job, and with and without family members; plus a 16-by-20-inch Modern Metals wall art hanging featuring their favorite farm dog photo, complete with the winning credentials. In addition, the first-place farm dog will receive $100; second place will receive $75; and third place will receive $50.

And don’t forget the real prize: neighborhood glory for your four-legged friend.

ENTER HERE! Send in your photo and tell us about your dog. Include your name, address and phone number, plus your dog’s name, age and breed.
