Cattle.com Bounty System
FRIDAY, JUNE 15, 2012
The current record for a calf sale photo we’ve found being tilted is 9.7 degrees off center. It was a black and white heifer and despite what some might think, I still haven't cited any specific person or picture on this blog, so I won't do it this time either.
There's obviously no law against it so I'm going to deputize myself as Mr. Texas law dog and I don't really care if law just don't go 'round here...
Cattle.com will donate $100 to the local 4-H club or FFA chapter of the first person to find a legitimately marketed picture that breaks that record.
Once a new record is set and publicized here on this blog, we’ll do a new bounty for the next picture that breaks the record.
The Fine Print
In this case, “legitimately marketed” means a picture that is used for an actual online sale or in a magazine to market an actual calf that will actually sell. Essentially, it’s has to be a picture for an actual calf/cow/bull, not a prank. The determination of a ‘legitimate’ picture will be determined at the sole discretion of Cattle.com management.
It has to be a 'new' picture. It can't be an archived old picture from a previous sale.
Degree of tilt will be determined solely by myself, Jeff Schroeder, using the ruler tool in Adobe Photoshop to measure the angle of background objects that can reasonably be assumed to point upward. Degree of tilt will be determined by me and me alone. You will respect my authoritah.
Send pictures along with the location they’re being used to market the animal to firstname.lastname@example.org
Winner of the bounty will be the first person to send the picture in.
If you are the winner, we will ask for a 4-H club of FFA chapter to send the check to. We’ll send the check with “One behalf of [your name]” in the memo.
Winners will remain anonymous but your 4-H club or FFA chapter might ask why they got the check.
The picture (or a link to it) will be posted to the blog in a celebration of a new record being set.
Contest may be terminated at any time after a picture has been determined to be the new record holder. After that, the bounty will only be given for "cart off" hits to Robert Griffin III.
This is not a joke, I’m super serious, send ‘em in.
What is your email address?
