Round up time in Copper

Some of us traveling down Little John Road this past week, were lucky enough to be treated to a country round up of the Airola cattle for branding, ear tagging, castrations and inoculations.

Bill Airola allowed me to take some shots of the finely orchestrated event, from round up to treatment.  Each member of the team had a specific job to carry out so that the time the calf spent in treatment was extremely short.

I had never been this close before, and I must say, I was impressed with how fluid the operation was. Multiple people carrying out multiple jobs all in an effort to get the calf treated and on its way as quickly as possible. Impressive.

Thank you Airola family for allowing me to observe.
