Oklahoma Cattle Brand Registration Fees Upped from $20 to $40 Starting with 2020 Five Year Registration Cycle

Sun, 25 Aug 2019 14:40:30 CDT

Oklahoma Cattle Brand Registration Fees Upped from $20 to $40 Starting with 2020 Five Year Registration Cycle During the July 2019 Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association (OCA) Convention, the OCA Board called for a special meeting on Aug. 24 to consider an increase to the brand registration and renewal fee. The OCA Board met at the Lazy E Arena this past Saturday morning to officially consider this proposal. The proposal considered and passed by the OCA Board would increase the brand registration and renewal registration fees from $20 to $40. In Oklahoma, brand registrations occur every five years (years ending in '0' and '5').


After debate among the members gathered, the OCA board approved the increase in brand fees effective with the 2020 brand registration cycle.


In talking with Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays after the board meeting, OCA President Mike Weeks offered some perspective for considering the fee increase. "The brand fee has not been modified in well over 20 years. We all know that fixed cost expenses like postage, staffing and printing have dramatically increased in that time period. We need to have a reasonable fee that allows for documentation of brands and the administration of the registration and renewal process. With that in mind, the OCA Board approved the brand registration


OCA had a three week comment period that ended this past Thursday- only 22 comments were submitted. To put some perspective on the number of comments received- there are currently 14,000 active brand registrations on the books.
