After canceling our second branding last Friday we made a go of it yesterday. We had a gorgeous day and fabulous help.
Here are a few pictures from both of the brandings we had at home.
Babies sorted off from their mother’s waiting to get vaccinated, castrated (if applicable), fly tagged and implants for the steers.
For the first branding we got our neighbor Jamie to push calves. Jamie is a jack of many trades and awesome help when we need an extra hand working cattle.
J branded the calves.
My favorite Mechanic caught the head and turned the table.
Roy pushed calves; he’s always good for a genuine smile.
We have a few new babies to brand and will do so after the last 5 or 6 cows decide to calf.
Today we are headed over to brand at Cousin T’s; unless the rain stops us.
