Farmers are invited to submit nominations for the 2020 Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year contest, brought to you by Purina. This is the second year of the contest, which celebrates farm dogs who work alongside their people to bring nutritious food to our tables and our pets’ bowls.
The grand prize winner – Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year – will win a year’s worth of Purina dry dog food and $5,000 in prize money for his or her farmer to offset travel costs to attend the American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention in Austin, Texas, Jan. 17-22, 2020. The winner will be recognized at the Farm Dog of the Year award ceremony at the convention. Up to four runners-up will win $1,000 each in prize money.
“Again this year, we’re excited for this special opportunity to honor these loyal members of our farm and ranch families,” said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. “Farm dogs lighten the workload and enrich our lives by providing faithful and playful companionship.”
Rhett and Beth Crandall of Utah County placed as a runner-up in last year's competition.
