Budding photographers from the dairy industry can enter their photos in a new competition.

Budding photographers from the dairy industry can show off their skills this month, with agricultural machinery dealer O’Connors offering over $2000 worth of prizes in a competition shining a spotlight on dairy farmers.

The photography competition, which will be run on the company’s Facebook page, calls for entrants to “show us your cow”, and offers a Case IH esky per week for four weeks to dairy-related images with the most public votes. These four finalists will then be in the running to win a 2.0KVA Petrol Inverter Generator, worth $900.

O’Connors marketing director Lisa Day acknowledges that the industry is surfing some ups and downs at the moment and says the competition is about starting conversations with everyone who’s passionate about dairying.

“We’re not about the politics. We know it’s a tough game to be in and we wanted to come up with something to add positivity to the dialogue,” she said.

The family-owned business has a 54-year history of being committed to community. It’s well known as a broadacre specialist, however, according to Ms Day, it has plenty to offer farmers from a variety of agricultural industries.

“With six branches across South East Australia and the backing of machinery leader Case IH, O’Connors is here for farmers of all industries and that includes dairy,” she said.

The competition kicked off on June 14 and will run for four weeks.
