Brands & Branding in Carmel Valley
This detailed look into the brands and branding of Carmel Valley was assembled by Historical Society volunteer Jeff Ohlson in the 2015-2016 time period. Originally a powerpoint presentation given by Steve and Mollie Dorrance of Dorrance Ranches, Salinas, CA, this document covers all aspects of branding. Covered are skills required in the branding corral, pro’s & Con’s of hot vs. cold branding, brand designs, how to read a brand, branding in the 1970s vs today, inoculations, ear marking, and other details of the branding corral.
