Inactive Brands

The PDF files below contain brands that were once recorded as Montana brands, but they were not rerecorded in 2011 or a previous rerecord year. They are now considered inactive brands. 

PLEASE NOTE: Per MCA 81-3-103, new brands issued by Montana Department of Livestock (MDOL) must be distinguishable with reasonable certainty from all other marks and brands. MDOL utilizes a meticulous, systematic process to check new brand applicants against existing Montana brands to ensure that they are unique. The brands listed in these files are eligible for application, however some brands listed in these files will not be available due to conflicts with other brands or because the brand is in a format that is no longer issued.

The fee for recording a brand is $200, half of which ($100) is non-refundable; payment is required when submitting your application. Click here for more information about applying for a brand.

Liens stay with the brand and position, so use caution when applying for a brand with an active lien. Only the lien holder can remove the lien on a brand.

These files are organized alphabetically by major character. If you do not have software installed that can read PDF files, download the free Adobe Reader here.
