A cow walks into a ladder… and the winner is

Beef Central, 27/08/2015

A cow walks into a ladder… and creates an almost impossible job for judges trying to pick a winner from dozens of funny captions submitted as a result.

More than 80 entries were entered in our caption competition via our Facebook and directly to Beef Central over the past week.

In order to find a winner we asked 10 members of the Beef Central editorial, advertising and production team to each pick their two favourite captions from the mix.

Showing how hard it was to pick a winner, more than 12 captions received votes.

But ultimately it was the caption submitted by Tim Kelf which has earned him a copy of The Long Paddock from ABC Books – see the winning entry and the runners up below.
