The Covergirl

Her name is Serena.

I get pretty excited when I open up a magazine and some of my work is in it, and this time it was a complete surprise. In December I went up the Boy's house to help him picture and video some of the cattle he would be selling in the Iowa Beef Expo. The Iowa Cattlemen picked up one of my pictures for the cover. Cattle marketing has become just as high tech as retailers swaying you towards certain brands.

Serena will sell in the Iowa Beef Expo Hereford sale on Feb. 17. For more information on this show heifer prospect click here. 

Today, Cattlemen can use Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, E-Blast, Websites, YouTube, Print Advertising and straight ole call you up and try to sell you something marketing. 


  1. Congrats - wicked picture!!! Also love your new blog theme. Your "about" content brought tears to my eyes Crystal. I'm so proud of you and admire the authentic approach you've created to being an Ag-vocate!

  2. Congrats girl! I love the pic, she's a beauty!!

  3. Congrats. Great picture. YOur second cover shot of many more to come.

  4. My wife and I have been having a debate. We are wedding photographers as well as purebred breeders. When I say we pictured some cattle she corrects me and says photographed some cattle. All cattle people I know use the term picture cattle so now she is determined to convert them one at a time.

  5. Love it... I would be so excited! :) Congratulations on this awesome acheviment*

  6. Congrats!! If you get to Arizona and take some pictures I'm sure I would use them on my cover too!

  7. Congratulations Crystal!!! It's a gorgeous picture and heifer...although not nearly black enough.... LOL

  8. Thanks everyone for your kind comments!

    @Andrew I had never thought of that. I guess I have always said pictured cattle.

    @The Farmer's Trophy Wife. I would agree. Working on getting blacker ones or maybe a little more red to begin with.


Thanks for stopping by! I love to hear from all my readers. Hope you have a fabulous day.
