Branding Event at Grant- Kohrs Ranch, MT.

Grant- Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site was branding about 55 calves today. So, we watched how they brand cattle.IMG_6208 Branding dates back to the ancient Egyptians. It’s used for identifying cattle owners. Modern day branding uses different techniques. This ranch stays true to the 1800’s way of branding, making it very interesting.

I think the calves were more upset about being temporally separated from their mamas then the actual branding!
