The Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year contest provides a “working-class alternative” to the Westminster Dog Show, according to a Wall Street Journal feature article (subscription required). “Scrappy pooches that serve as work dynamos on farms and ranches across the country” are recognized through the contest, which helps the public connect with life on the farm.

Nominations are accepted online for the current contest through July 15 at fb.org/land/fdoty. The grand prize winner – Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year – will win a year’s worth of Purina Pro-Plan dog food and $5,000 in prize money. The winner will be recognized at the American Farm Bureau Federation Convention in January 2023.
