Stockmen’s Association publishes new brand book
The 2016 North Dakota Brand Record is now available from the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association (NDSA). The new 614-page brand book contains information regarding the more than 18,000 brands renewed during North Dakota’s recent brand renewal period. It also features a hard cover for improved durability and longevity, said Rachael Preusse, NDSA brand recorder.   
The 2016 North Dakota Brand Record is black in color, 8.5 x 11 inches in size and uses the same open design and easy-to-navigate index as the previous edition. “Its hard cover also makes the book a special keepsake,” Preusse said.
To get a copy of the perfect-bound book or its electronic version, stop by the NDSA office or mail a check to the NDSA, 407 S. 2nd Street, Bismarck, ND 58504. The book is available for $48 if it is picked up or $53.49, which includes postage (current media rate of $5.49), if it is mailed. The electronic version of the book on CD is available for $19.
The prices include the initial book or CD, as well as five annual supplements, which will be mailed as soon after Jan. 1 of each year as possible.
This is the latest edition of the state’s brand record. The Stockgrowers’ Association published the first edition in 1892.
