    To the PETA, “Professional and Ethical Treatment of Animals and SPCA, and other organizations. Please stop cruelty to baby calves by branding, dehorning and other operations.

Texans made a fortune by raising longhorns. Branding is more of a tradition than a necessity. Here in Whitewater, the weather has b...
