Now That's Branding!


Sometimes, when you’re searching for branding stories you find the most interesting things. My mom was raised on a cattle ranch in the sandhills of Nebraska, so I came pretty close to living an entirely different kind of “branding” life.

This is a news story about taking a bunch of foreign exchange students to a working cattle ranch and showing them the ropes, so to speak. They branded and castrated calves and learned about an important part of Americana.

Here’s a key quote:

Naoko Okano of Japan ate a Rocky Mountain Oyster, as the cuttings from the males are called when cooked. There was a grill along the back fence at the corral to the northeast of the Dunphy exit off Interstate 80.

“It was good. It’s just meat, you know,” she said.
