Meet Bindi, Farm Bureau’s 2021 Farm Dog of the Year. New York Farm Bureau member Sonja Galley relies on this Australian Shepherd to help her round up cattle on her family’s 60-cow dairy farm. Bindi helps out in a variety of ways—she once very protectively pushed back a heifer that pinned Sonja in the corner of a pen.
The Farm Dog of the Year contests celebrates farm dogs and the many ways they support farmers and ranchers in producing nutritious food for families and their pets across America. Farmers are invited to submit nominations for the 2022 Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year contest, supported by Purina.
The grand prize winner – Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year – will win a year’s worth of Purina dog food and $5,000 in prize money. The winner will be recognized at a Farm Dog of the Year award ceremony at the American Farm Bureau Federation Convention in January 2022. Up to four regional runners-up* will each win $1,000 in prize money.
