Finally got our calves branded today. Still have a couple more cows to do. With the price cattle still rising and hearing about more cattle thefts, figured it would be a good idea. Also, I just thought it would be cool to brand our cows with our own brand.




Ended up with a double line under the N on this one somehow.




Here is our freezer steer for next fall. Saw in the paper that steer under 300 lbs are bringing up to $5/lbs. That is just crazy. He is probably 250-275 right now.

branding is always a good idea, your brand is only registered in your county, thieves usually travel out of county to sell

Those are fire brands, right? I hear that some use cold branding with nitrogen, is that correct?

RAb,
Most people are using an electric brander nowdays. Much easier than fire and they are ready to go in 90 seconds. Yes some people are also using freeze branders but I have never used one.

Awesome pic's Nathan. Given the price of beef lately, not surprised they are bringing that much at the sale barn.
