    Actually yes.....well don't know about the train robberies. But, cattle and horse theft is a big problem.(not so much horse either since the closing of the killer market). A 5 weight animal will bring well over a dollar a pound in todays market. Most western states have strict brand laws, so if my cattle show up at a sale barn wearing my brand, the brand inspecter is going to protect my interests if the seller can't produce a bill of sale etc. If you think branding is barberic, you should see what we do to cattle theives.

    I think it has to be permanent in their line of work. Perhaps a nice tattoo, like a heart that says MOM inside ?

    Hmmmm, those branding irons look a lot like those we see all rusted up and going as phoo phoo stuff for wannabeewesterndecor types.

    I've always been told to put on a heat sink when making a branding iron. That way it hold its heat and can do more brands between heats.

    The pot is neat.

    As far as irons go, no I dont need any but thanks for the offer. I don't brand, only tattoo the ears. I raise registered charolais myself.

    You do any ranching??

    I grew up on farm and did the rodeo thing for close to 10 years as a bareback rider, I fenced in the summer and processed cows for feed lots in the winter time, I met a ranchers daughter and married her, we live just outside calgary so the chances of me getting back into farming/ranching is very slim, it cost close to a million to have, say 10 acres around here, they use alot of electric brands around here as well, and you dont have brandings like they use to. those where fun times for sure! there's alot of red/black angus, herford use to be big but the black/red have taken over, in laws run a bunch of registered red angus
