Calf branding takes place in April, May, and June at the V Bar V Ranch. Calves approximately 3 weeks old are brought through the chutes for a general health exam, and are vaccinated, ear tagged, dehorned, and bled (blood is drawn for DNA testing). Members of local FFA chapters and other volunteers come to the Ranch at branding time to lend a hand and to get hands-on experience working cattle.
