'Cow Pasture Logo Contest'

Seven entries were submitted...upon much deliberation, two entries were combined to create what the Committee felt best represents the Cow Pasture. Scott Bascom's artwork and Jamieson Gallas's messaging and peripheral design were combined to create the Cow Pasture logo.
The Committee would like thank all the artists for their interest and creative artwork.
