"I'm Bruce Winegar, we raise cattle under Bruce Winegar Cattle and we have been doing it forever. "We're branding our first-calf heifers. We have calved out 65 first-calf heifers and we just brought them in and we're going to brand them so we can put them up on the mountain," added the rancher.
And then... "They need to be branded and marked so that neighbors know who they belong to if they happen to end up in their corrals," said Winegar.
Is the cattle market a concern this year?
"You, know I follow the market, I have a neighbor that follows the market that follows it a lot, buys, sells, trade and tells me all the bad news that's going on. We still have the cattle, we still have the same cattle we have had for 40 years in this area and they will be for sale this fall. But the way the market is, it's not very favorable for us," said Winegar.
