These Hereford calves were sorted away from their mothers and await
their turn to be branded and vaccinated.

Now that May has arrived, branding season is upon us. Ranchers brand their cattle before turning them out onto public lands for summer grazing. With this year's late green-up, the Bureau of Land Management has delayed turnout until May 15.
On Sunday, local rodeo hands helped out at the Urbigkit's
branding near Big Piney. John and Ryan Kennamon and Austin
Doyle helped Cass Urbigkit wrestle calves.
