BRANDING

Curt McCuistion of Sugar City, Colo. takes a break during a branding on Gray's Ranch in Crowley County, Colo. on June 1, 2016. During the day 260 calves will be wrangled, branded, vaccinated and tagged. Males are castrated to prevent them from becoming aggressive as they get older. Ranchers in the area rely on each other to help with brandings, which are also a social event in the rural county.
