The month of May is busy on a ranch as that is when the calving season in many states comes to an end. This also means that ranch work changes gears. Fences are to be mended. Bulls have been bought. Now cows with newborn calves must go through being “worked” to be ready for summer. This is all done during a “Branding”.
What some look forward to the most in the spring, or the whole year are brandings. (For BEC this is her highlight, Christmas!) Ranches chose their day, many neighboring ranches having held certain dates for years, or even generations. Your ranch’s branding is a special occasion. Yes, it is hard work. Yes, everyone will be dirty. Yes, you will feel full-filled from a hard hard day’s work usually filled with antics and the socializing you have missed all these cold winter months.
CAMARADERIE & FELLOWSHIP
Once the hard day is over, there is a sense of freedom. The sense of pride in seeing a job well done with friends. At the conclusion of branding, that ranch or farm will host a dinner or supper. This is an opportunity to share over a home-cooked meal. It is also a time to relax and enjoy one another’s company. A time to reunite the neighborhood.
- BEC was raised on a large cattle ranch. She learned to “Cowboy”. The lessons learned were priceless.
