牛仔烙印牛只的工作

牛仔的某些工作较其他工作更具挑战性,而且也需要更多的实际操作经验,如:钉马蹄铁、将运货马车拖离泥泞坑洞,及烙印牛只,但不可伤及牛皮。牛只烙印是经营牛只牧场的重大工作;烙印的目的是为了方便各牧场辨别自己的牛只;烙印工作不单单只是将特定符号印在动物身上而已;您猜烙印工作还包括了那些项目?
 


Some things about being a buckaroo are more challenging to learn than others and require practice--learning how to shoe horses, getting a truck out of a desert mud hole, and branding a cow without burning through the hide. Branding the cows is an important process in cattle ranching. Calves need to be branded for the purposes of identification. Branding consists of more than just applying a symbol to the side of the animal. What other things do you think branding includes?
