CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - Wyoming’s ranch trademarks now come with an expiration date.

Wyoming Livestock Board officials are working to ensure more than 5,600 brands are renewed or returned in 2014. Renewals are required biannually and are required by state law.

The board is working to improve the rate of renewals and ensure that families do not lose their brands.

According to the Casper Star-Tribune (https://tinyurl.com/qysxxye ), the livestock board sends notice to ranchers 60 days prior to the brand’s Dec. 31 expiration date. Ranchers are given a 60-day grace period to renew their expired brands. Once that time passes, the brand is placed on a delinquent brand list.
