This footage captures scenes of inmates from the Ramsey Unit, a Texas Department of Criminal Justice prison farm near Rosharon, assisting cowboys with administering shots and branding cattle. The producer of this film, Jim W. Keeland, was a photographer and videographer in the Houston area for sixty years. He took photographs and films for Houston's NBC affiliate, KPRC-TV, from 1948 until 1961, worked for the Houston Post from 1951 to 1982 as a printer, and was a freelance photographer of agricultural subjects.
