Farm Bureau holds Farm Dog of the Year contest

The American Farm Bureau Federation is sponsoring a competition for the 2021 Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year.Dogs will be judged on their helpfulness to the farmer and their family, their playfulness and obedience. Owners must be Farm Bureau members to enter the competition, a release said.

The contest is sponsored by Purina, and the grand prize is $5,000, a year’s worth of Purina dry dog food, and national recognition. Up to four runners-up will each receive $1,000, the announcement said.

Another part of the competition is People’s Choice Pup, letting social media followers vote for, comment on, share and “like” their favorite farm dogs. The bureau will profile the top 10 dogs starting in October.

The American Farm Bureau Federation is taking nominations through Aug. 20. Full information on the contest may be found at
