Calf Branding

In May and early June, local ranchers hold their annual brandings of the new crop of calves, which are typically born in March and April. Brands have been the primary method of identifying ownership of cattle in the Upper Green River Valley since the arrival of the first cattle in then 1870s. In Wyoming, as well as several other western states, cattle can not be moved across county lines, state lines, or be sold without a brand inspection to prove ownership. All cattle in the state are branded. Local photographer Tara Bolgiano visited a branding at Chris and Carla Sullivan's ranch near Boulder and recorded the event. More
