Photo Contest Part 1: Livestock and the work it takes to raise them

At the end of 2018, we asked our readers to send in some of their favorite agriculture photos of 2018 — and readers came through.

We have photos of all seasons, of all phases of life on farms and ranches. Readers sent in photos of planting and harvest, of livestock and landscapes. The photos give you a feel of what it's like to live and work on the land.

Throughout February, we'll be sharing some of our favorite photos in the pages of Agweek and at This week's selections focus on the livestock of our region and the work it takes to raise them. We hope you enjoy them, and, as always, thank you for reading Agweek.
