This black and white photographic postcard features calves getting branded. Two men stand around several cows that are in a pen. One man sits on a calf while another man holds the calf's leg. A man stands behind the calf and brands it with a branding iron. A boy stands in the background next to the fence with his hands on his hips. Written text is at the bottom of the card. (Note indicates the photo was taken by Liberal, Kansas photographer Hal Reid.)
