Alberta Canada Cattle branding

Photos by Darlene Froberg

The province of Alberta Canada is known as a cattle ranching area. At a ranch near the city of Medicine Hat the cattle are rounded up from the pasture and branded with a mark that identifies them with that particular ranch.

This ranch includes a small herd of goats.

The cows have been brought in from the pasture and the young ones who need to be checked and branded are separated from the mothers. They don’t look too happy about it!

A young heifer is put into a restraining device so it won’t kick the cowboys or injure itself.

The devices is rotated so the animal can be checked, given an injection against disease and branded. It only remains in this position for a few minutes before everything is completed.

The young calves are then free to rejoin the herd and go back into the pasture.
