Series 540

1851-1920 Brands have been registered in Utah since 1851. Brand books were used locally to prevent the duplicate use of brands by livestock owners, and as a means of identifying and controlling animals left in estray pounds or that were being sold. Later, as regulations expanded state control over inspection for disease, transportation, and slaughter of livestock, maintenance of a central brand registry became even more important.
