North Dakota Stockmen’s Association publishes 2021 Brand Record


The 2021 North Dakota Brand Record is now available from the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association (NDSA). The new 688-page brand book contains information regarding the more than 19,000 brands renewed during North Dakota’s recent brand renewal period.


The 2021 North Dakota Brand Record is green in color, 8.5-by-11 inches in size and uses the same open design and easy-to-navigate index as previous editions. “The book’s hard cover will improve its durability and longevity and makes the book a special keepsake,” said Steph Hille, NDSA brand recorder.


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 $60 if it is picked up or $66.50, which includes shipping and handling, if it is mailed. The electronic version of the book on a flash drive is available for $6 if it is picked up or $7.50, which includes shipping and handling, if it is mailed.


The prices include the initial book or flash drive, as well as five annual supplements, which will be mailed as soon after Jan. 1 of each year as possible.


If you are looking to add to or complete a collection of North Dakota brand books, the NDSA also has the 2011 and 2016 Brand Records available for purchase. Contact the NDSA office at (701) 223-2522 to find out more about purchasing these editions.


This 2021 North Dakota Brand Record is the latest of the state’s published brand records. The Stockgrower’s Association published the first edition before statehood in 1892.
