Brand those calves!

Calves looking for their moms.

We have been really shorthanded this spring, so in order to get the calves branded, we had to call on every friend, neighbor and family member that we could rope into helping.  I thought we might have to use literal roping to get a crew together, but in the end, enough folks showed up at each branding to get the job done.  We started in early May, and finished the last branding on June 23rd. Thanks to all who helped us!
