Ha ha well we can't get what they think they are worth. The road we live on used to be called the north string in the valley. It was first homestead because of the water springs here. So I hauled my neighbors bulls off the north string. We shoulder brand all bulls in the valley on right shoulder with year turned out. They have to be two year olds to be turned out. We run them 4 years if they make it that long. So this year all the 9's go to town. The brand will have a zero then last number of year below it. So a 0 and 9 stacked on shoulder. Real easy to ride into herd and cut bulls out to be sold at weaning time. Don't have to look up paperwork on them, or rely on eartags that fall out all the time.
