Branding Cows

April 08, 1986

I recently learned of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's plan to buy millions of excess dairy cows from farmers, and hot-iron face-brand them (while alive) for identification purposes.

To me, this is outrageous! I understand that the process is so painful for the cows, and the required brand so large, that it takes several days for the cows to be able to eat again.
