The Montana Department of Livestock (MDOL) is reminding brand owners time is winding down to get those brands rerecorded with the Department. All brands need to be rerecorded by December 31, 2011.
The 2011 brand rerecord began on January 3, 2011. Since then the majority of the state’s 55,000 active brands have been rerecorded.
This week Russell Nemetz talked with the MDOL’s Brands Division Administrator John Grainger about the December 31, 2011 deadline.
He says the majority of the state’s brands have been rerecorded but a few are still out there.
Brand owners have a new option this year to help with rerecord and that’s online rerecord.
Again the deadline for Montana brand owners to rerecord their brands is Saturday, December 31, 2011.
