The application deadline for American Farm Bureau’s Farm Dog of the Year contest is right around the corner. Micheal Clements shares more on how to nominate a farm dog.
Clements: The application period for the Farm Dog of the Year contest closes this Friday, July 2. Terri Moore, American Farm Bureau Federation Vice President of Communications, says the contest celebrates farm dogs and the many ways they support farmers and ranchers.
Moore: The Farm dog of the Year contest is really a chance to celebrate the important role that farm dogs play in farm families and on working farms. It’s a great way to connect with those outside of agriculture through our shared love of pets.
Clements: Moore says there are a number of prizes up for grabs.
Moore: The Grand Prize Winner gets $5,000 in prize money and a year's worth of Purina dog food, as well as being recognized at our convention. And this year, we also have up to four regional runners up that will each win $1,000 in prize money. The People's Choice Pup will also return for the 2022 competition. This is an online version of the contest. The winner will get some bragging rights and also a year's worth of Purina dog food. And I do want to say we're very appreciative to Purina for supporting the Farm Dog of the Year contest.
Clements: You can submit an application online.
Moore: It's very easy to nominate your farm dog. Any Farm Bureau member can do it, and if you go to fb.org, our website, you can see the questionnaire, just a couple of questions to answer, and we'd love it if you submit a video. Easy as that.
Clements: Again, apply by Friday at fb.org/farmdog. Micheal Clements, Washington.
