Can you put brand marks on your cattle?
One of our cities is dedicated to animal breeding and why shouldn't it be possible to put a label on our "products" and give the buyers a possibility to brag about what high quality animals he just bought?
I like the idea for cattle, but what I like even more would be if said city was renowned not because all it's horses had a "W" burned into its flank or some such, but if you knew the horse was from that city because only said city has horses with all white coats and black socks or red eyes or what have you.
Also for castration, easy answer. We get a 15 year old ward of the state to apprentice in animal husbandry, and see if sharp knife + trison + "research" = castration or death.
