Planting the brand

Once the heifer is secure and on the correct side, the branding is done. In a real branding, this would be done with a red hot iron which must stay on the animal for several seconds to burn in the brand. The animal doesn't like this one bit which is why the legs must all be tightly tied to prevent undue injury to the animal and people working nearby to get the job done.
