The deadline for Agriculture for Life's Alberta-wide photo contest is fast approaching.

CEO Luree Williamson says the #farmbabies16 contest highlights how farmers and farm families are proud parents of their new arrivals and sharing these photos and stories help to educate Albertans about life on the farm and the vital role agriculture plays in our lives.

Williamson says many people don't understand the dedication and care that goes into raising livestock and they want to share this story.

All species of farm animals born from January 1 - May 31, 2016 are eligible.

The #farmbabies16 contest is open to all Alberta residents and all entries must be photographs taken in Alberta

The contest ends Tuseday May 31, 2016.

One grand prize winner will be awarded and receive a selection of goods valued at over $600.

Prizes have been donated by ATB Financial, Hi-Pro Feeds and The Alberta Veterinary Medical Association..
