Branding season

Branding season is among the many ranches of the Roaring Fork Valley, including the Crystal River Ranch in Carbondale. Ranchhand Cody Redman worked with other members of the ranch to wrangle calves for branding and spring vaccinations. The calves are tagged and branded for identification purposes and vaccinated to boost their immunities as their mothers maternal antibodies weaken.
