A four person team made up of one roper, two flankers, and one brander. Two teams run at the same time. The Roper must enter the herd of calves and rope two and drag them across the line to the branding pot. The two flankers may not touch the calf until it has been dragged across the line. The calf is flanked then branded after it is flat on its side in the proper branding position. Time stops when two calves have been successfully branded, and the iron is returned to the branding pot. There is a three minute time limit.
