Capture A Day-In-The Life on Your Family Farm or Ranch & Enter to Win $250

Whether it’s lambing or calving, field prep, planting, fixing fence or making machinery repairs, across South Dakota there’s never a dull moment on family farms and ranches.

So, what’s happening on your farm? Snap a photo of a family member working on your farm or ranch and text or e-mail it to South Dakota Farmers Union (SDFU) and be entered in a drawing for a chance to win $250!

Entries accepted today thru July 1.

Everyone can participate. You don’t even need a camera, cell phone photos work great. We’re not looking for professional photos. We’re looking for real life shots that show you and your family members in everyday clothes, doing everyday farm or ranch work or play. Yup, we want at least one family member in every shot.

“From dawn till dusk…and many days late into the night, our state’s farm and ranch families are hard at work. During this unique time, Farmers Union thought a photo contest would be a fun way to keep us all connected,” explains Karla Hofhenke, SDFU Executive Director.

Contest details

Each time you submit a photo, your name will be entered in a drawing to win $250 cash prize. To enter, simply text or e-mail a photo, along with a photo description (who is in the photo and what they are doing), the photographer’s name, phone number and e-mail address to Union Farmer editor, Lura Roti at 605-695-5872 or [email protected]. Need some ideas? Photos of field work, working on machinery, feeding bottle lambs or calves, working cattle, fixing fence, making machinery repairs…you name it, if it’s happening on your farm or ranch feel free to share it. Photos may be used for promotional purposes, published in the Union Farmer newsletter and posted to SDFU website and social media.
