Submit your hay photos for a chance to win our 2014 contest

Published on 15 September 2014

Long-time Progressive Forage Grower readers know and love our annual hay bale decorating contest. (Read about last year's contest winners.) This year, we’ve decided to broaden our horizons. Decorated hay bales will be one of three categories in this year's photo contest. The two new categories are hay equipment, and people or animals and hay.

All photos must show some form of hay – a snapshot of your baler in the shop won’t make the cut. Other than that, let your creative side lead the way. We still love seeing photos of your decorated hay bale projects. Or aim for the silliest combo of people and hay, or capture that amazing sunset over the hay field, with your hay equipment in the foreground.

To enter, simply email your photo to by Nov. 24. The best entries will be determined by the public, via votes submitted online. Voting will be open Dec. 1-14. 

The person who submits the entry that receives the most votes will win a $50 gift card. The winners of each category will receive their choice of Progressive Publishing hats ($10 value).

We're excited to see what you come up with!  FG
