Wyoming Livestock Brands due for renewal in 2017 are now expired as of December 31, 2016. However, a grace period has been granted until midnight March 1, 2017 to renew brands. Please remember to make sure brand renewals are postmarked by midnight March 1, 2017 in order to avoid a late fee on your renewal. All brands renewed after midnight on March 1, 2017 will cost an additional $150.00 on top of the $300.00 renewal fee. The Wyoming Livestock Board will be sending a certified letter containing a second brand renewal notice to those producers who have a brand due for renewal and did not renew their brands prior to January 31, 2016.
