Actually owning a brand is something I never heard of.Our brand is CC, second C is hanging from the top C, so called a C hanging C. Mr. FH likes it because it is really one iron, easily put on and really easy to see on the cows when you are horseback. It never blotches.
We have Lazy K X, laying down K with X underneath, it's a rib brand but we are going to sell it. We also have Mr. FH grandfathers brand, X Tuning fork, looks like and X with a modified Y underneath, rib brand also. But we will never sell that, it will be passed on down.
Best rib brand we know is a Dutch X. Kind of like a C back to back and when the cow matures it goes from top to belly of the cow. But the owner switched to a hip brand long ago because there was some resistance to it, due to damage of the hide.
$300 to register a brand in WY for 10 years!!Actually owning a brand is something I never heard of.
Down here in Texas you register your brand for 10 years,
In Texas brands have to be re-registered every 10 years. Brand re-registration always begins in the year ending with a 1. For example, the next brand re-registration period begins Aug. 31, 2011, and closes Feb. 29, 2012. If you do not re-register within that period, then your brand is up for grabs by someone else.
I think the last time I registered ours it cost $5.00.
Another thing, if you have a registered brand or mark it has to be used.
This stops people registering a brand or mark just to say that they have one.
Is the brand registered for the whole state or just the county you live in.$300 to register a brand in WY for 10 years!!
We own them and we can sell them.
