Members of the portuguese bullfighting group, "Forcados Amadores de Evora", hold a cow down for branding at the farm "Monte do Zambujal". The forcados gather here annually at the farm, owned by one of the group's father to brand over 70 cows which helps them train and get accustomed to working with large animals before confronting upto 600 kg. bulls during their performances as a group throughout Portugal. This branding method is almost obsolete throughout Europe but is mantained by the Forcados as a way to unite the group's efforts. | Location: Monte do Zambujal, Alentejo, Portugal.
