This week’s featured video was produced by the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) to highlight the 2020 Farm Dog of the Year. Flint, an 11 year old Australian Shepherd, owned by Beth and Rhett Crandall, Utah was recognized at the recent AFBF Convention in Austin, Texas. The annual Farm Dog contest celebrates dogs that actively work on farms and ranches to produce nutritious food for families and their pets across America.
“Meet Flint, Farm Bureau’s 2020 Farm Dog of the Year. Rhett and Beth Crandall depend on this Australian Shepherd to move livestock through multiple pastures. He’s also certified through the Canine Good Citizens program and in his free time, he spends time visiting with residents at senior centers in Utah.” American Farm Bureau
Purina is the sponsor of the contest that offers a grand prize of $5,000, a year’s supply of dog food & other products, and a trophy plate. Four runner up dogs also received $1,000.
