My first week on the Chico I went to four brandings. Two brandings were for Ranchlands cattle but the other two were actually at some of the nearby ranches. While we traveled to other ranches to help out, our neighbors also came to the Chico to beef up our ground & roping crew. It’s amazing to see a close knit community come together to support one another during the branding season!
