BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The end of the renewal period for livestock brands in North Dakota is approaching.

The Stockmen’s Association is reminding ranchers wanting to keep their livestock brands that they have until Dec. 31 to renew them. The brands will expire on Jan. 1.

There are more than 23,000 livestock brands on record in North Dakota. The state requires that all brands be renewed at the end of five years.

The Stockmen’s operates the brand program under the direction of the state Legislature.

Brand Recorder Rachael Preusse says more than half of the renewals have already been returned, but thousands still remain in the countryside.

To renew a brand, livestock owners need to complete a brand renewal form and pay $25 per brand position.
