We branded calves at our place today. Poor things never know what they're in for but their torture only lasts a few minutes at most. 3 vaccinations, a new ear tag, a burned hip and if they are boys, they lose their manhood so to speak. My job was the usual: paper work, load RFID tags into the piercing guns, help with mixing vaccinations, provide treats and beverages, and cook lunch. Everything went well.
The Prairie Kid "helped" push calves up
Burn, baby, burn
A little ear piercing
"Mama! Where are you? Ouch, ouch, ouch"
Now its off to town to watch The Prairie Kid's hero play some football! Go Broncs!
