Montana Memory Project
A 40,000-page collection of historical livestock brands encompassing the beginning of brand registrations in Montana in 1873 and including new brand assignments, transfers, and re-registrations through 1980. The records were compiled by the Brands Enforcement Division of the Montana Department of Livestock. Brands were registered for a ten-year time period and had to be re-registered - starting in 1911 - at the start of each decade (1921,1931, etc.).
