    They still brand cattle?


    I know that they did it to prevent selling of stolen cattle....but do people still steal them?
    Some days it just isn't worth chewing thru the restraints.

    This is literal branding? I think it's a cruel and mostly pointless practice nowadays.

    to prevent the pain, couldnt the farmer tir pink bands around the neck or ankle to indentify,(indentification is by the color or number on the band) like what carrier pigions have.

    The main reason cattle are branded is to prevent them from being stolen, as to show that the cattle is theirs (like when you write your name on your personal belongings)
    If it wasn't something permanent, like a band, the thief could simply remove it and claim the animal is theirs.
