Jason knows how to pick them. For the last two years his branding dates have been on Marian feast days. This year it was the Visitation. Hands down, the Kuhbacher branding is my favorite day of the year. Gorgeous day. Surprisingly green, thanks be to God. And not too hot. A fun time was had by all, but especially by Ernie and I.
The roundups went smooth. We gather them and then make the stampede into the portable corrals.
Once penned, the boys worm the cows and separate the calves.
