This week’s featured video was shared at the 2019 National Farm Bureau Convention in New Orleans, Louisiana.  An Australian Shepherd owned by Joe Sheeran, Texas was recognized as the 2019 Farm Dog of the Year.  A panel of expert judges reviewed more than 90 nominations to select the Farm Dog of the Year, based on helpfulness to the farmer and the role dogs played to make life better on the farm.

Woody, an Australian shepherd owned by Texas Farm Bureau members Joe and Mary Sheeran, is the winner of the 2019 Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year award. The American Farm Bureau Federation, with support from Nestlé Purina, recognized Woody and four runners-up at AFBF’s 100th Annual Convention.  Woody, the grand prize winner of the 2019 Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year award, won a year’s worth of Purina dog food, $5,000 in prize money, a trophy plate and a basket of Purina products.
