Farm Bureau Names 2021 Farm Dog of the Year
USAgNet - 01/12/2021

The winner of the 2021 Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year award is Bindi, an Australian shepherd owned by New York Farm Bureau member Sonja Galley. The American Farm Bureau Federation, with support from Nestle Purina PetCare, recognized Bindi, four regional runners-up and a People's Choice Pup at the American Farm Bureau Virtual Convention.

"We're proud to partner with Purina for the third annual Farm Dog of the Year contest, celebrating hardworking farm and ranch dogs and the role they play in helping farmers and ranchers produce our sustainable food supply," said AFBF President Zippy Duvall. "From rounding up livestock to chasing off predators, a farm dog's work is never done."

The contest celebrates farm dogs that work alongside farmers and ranchers to produce nutritious food for families and their pets across America. The contest is popular with farmers and the general public alike, reaching nearly 400,000 users on social media through People's Choice Pup.

Bindi, the grand prize winner of the 2021 Farm Bureau Farm Dog of the Year award, is five years old and has been part of the family dairy farm since she was a puppy.

Purina donated prizes for the contest again this year. This included $5,000 in prize money, a trophy plate, a year's supply of dog food and other Purina products for Bindi.
