Over the long weekend I went up to Burns Lake area to visit the Danskin and Deeker congregations of the Eastern Mennonite Church. While I was there, I took in the branding of 39 yearlings. Here are the pictures and sounds of that Saturday morning.

I recorded the calf bawling with the iTalk App and took the pictures with my 3G iPhone.

I converted my iTalk recording from aiff to mp3 with NCH Software’s free Switch Sound File Converter, I tagged the audio file with NCH’s free Stamp ID3 Tag Editor. While I didn’t use NCH’s free WavePad Sound Editor, you may want to take a look at that free product also.
