Montana Brand Bible Update Delayed Until May 15  


Folks chomping at the bit to apply for new brands might have to wait a bit longer, as the state’s master brand book – the “brands bible” – won’t be up-to-date until May 15.


The master brand book was originally scheduled to be up-to-date and ready for public perusal on April 2, but a recent decision to suspend application and conflict policies for ranchers who missed the rerecord deadline has pushed that date back.


“We’ve had a lot of folks tell us that they’d be here on April 2 to look through the brand book,” said John Grainger, MDOL’s Brands Enforcement Division administrator. “We hope that get the news and don’t show up, because the book is not going to be up to date.”


New brands, however, are still being issued. Walk-in applicants can generally get a brand the same day, while applications that are mailed in are processed in the order received. Mail-in applications could take as long as 2-4 weeks to process, Grainger said.
