2015 brand renewal deadline March 1

The Wyoming Livestock Board reminds brand owners that all brand ID numbers ending with a dash five (- 5) must be renewed no later than midnight on March 1.

The brand recording office will send certified renewal letters soon to those who still owe renewal fees on their Wyoming brands. The board has more than 300 returned brands that could not be delivered to due to insufficient addresses.

“Although we have distributed those lists to various working groups and law enforcement agencies across Wyoming, spent hundreds of hours searching the Internet, making phone calls and trying to find relatives, we still have undeliverable brands in our files,” a board news release stated. “Currently, our brand records show approximately 2,857 brands that need to be renewed by midnight on March 1.”

Anyone unsure whether their address is current or whether their brand is up for renewal can contact the Livestock Board. Your renewal notice must accompany your payment.

After March 1, the renewal fee will be $300 plus an additional $150 for late fees.

To change the legal recording of a current brand record, a transfer of the record must occur as a separate action from renewing the brand.

After Dec. 31, all brands not renewed for the 2015 renewal period will be listed as abandoned brands and listed for public sale in early 2016.

For more information, call the Wyoming Livestock Board at 307-777-7515.
