Farm dogs play a special role on the farm. Versatile, intelligent and hard-working, these dedicated canines help our farmers feed the world. Farm dogs can serve in a variety of roles, including herding livestock, guarding property and even assisting with daily chores. They help manage and protect livestock by ensuring they are kept in designated areas and safeguarded from potential threats. Driven by instinct and a strong desire to please, farm dogs also provide an invaluable source of companionship and joy to their families.

In 2024, Georgia Farm Bureau is on a mission to highlight a few of our furry heroes through the 2024 Georgia Farm Dog Contest. The winner and finalists will be featured in an upcoming issue of Georgia Neighbors. Enter by May 1!

GFB will accept entries to the Georgia Farm Dog Contest from 2 p.m. on March 1 until 10 p.m. on May 1 or until 200 entries are received, whichever comes first.

Judging for the contest will take place May 1- 30. This is a skill-based contest and chance plays no part in the determination of winners.

One grand prize winner will receive a cover feature in an upcoming issue of Georgia Neighbors and a gift card with a retail value of $500. Four runners-up winners will also be featured in an upcoming issue of Georgia Neighbors as finalists.

The contest is open to GFB members ages 18 and over. Not a member? Consider joining today! Georgia Farm Bureau is a grassroots organization dedicated to supporting the future of Georgia's family farms and our access to locally grown food and fiber. Most of your membership fee, which is just $35/year, stays right in your county supporting your local farms. Membership is open to everyone.
