“Our roundup was the hardest of all work we had to do, but the most interesting, at least it was to most of us, because we then had roping and bul-dogging to do.
“Leeforce had a large corral, which enclosed about [?] acres, into this pen we drove the cattle. The corral save us from doing riding to hold the gathered cattle while the herd was being worked. We would gather about 300 or 400 hundred head at a time and drive the animals into the pen. After these were cut out, branded and counted, the animals were driven out and held separate from the rest of the herd until the entire herd [?] was gone over.
“All Spring calves were branded in Spring roundup. In the Fall all later born calves were branded and such as may have been missed during the previous roundup.
