Martok’s Campaign Contest 2012
Nominate your most leadership-worthy livestock to compete in the 2012 campaign contest.
Congratulations to Sophie the Blue Copper Maran hen and her top advisor, Amy Joyce, for a landslide victory, with 1164 of 3155 votes! They will receive a selection of Popular Farming magazines to add to their home library. Take a look at Sophie's campaign speech below.
I Sophie, of One Oak Farm here in sunny Florida, am the best candidate because I meet and greet all new members to the farm before the other ladies do to make sure we will all get along. I keep the peace between everyone so we stay in a happy, united group. I have been known to alert my family in times of danger so they have enough time to run and hide. I even join my family in the same nest box to lay eggs with them so they have company. I keep watchful eyes on newly hatched babies to help the tired mamas. I am a productive egg layer, laying dark, chocolate-brown eggs that currently are county fair ribbon winners the last 2 years I have entered them. If I am chosen, I'll continue my many roles and make One Oak Farm the best farm it can be.
