Or. Admin. R. 603-014-0310 - Permits to Use Out-of-State Livestock Brands and the Conditions and Fees for Such Use

(1) When an out-of-state brand is unavailable for recording due to its similarity to other brands recorded in Oregon, a permit to use such a brand shall be required.
(2) A permit to use a brand not recorded in Oregon shall be issued by the Department of Agriculture, acting through the Livestock Health and Identification Division, under the following conditions:
(a) The brand to be used must be currently registered in another state;
(b) The applicant must submit a facsimile (tracing) of the branding iron to be used;
(c) Permits shall be valid for eight months from the date of issue. A permit may be renewed once for a period of no greater than four months. In no event will permits be valid for longer than 12 months. Thereafter, continued use of the brand will require a new permit;
(d) Animals to be branded must be brand inspected before the out-of-state brand is applied. The usual brand inspection fee shall apply;
(e) If animals are branded at an auction market where brand inspection has occurred, no additional brand inspection fee shall be charged;
(f) Change of ownership brand inspection is required within eight days of the transfer. If rebranding takes place when its inspection occurs, no additional brand inspection shall be charged. However, if cattle are branded at a later time, another inspection shall be required and the usual fee shall apply;
(g) A $60 processing fee shall be charged for a permit; a $5 fee shall be charged for processing a renewal of the permit.
(3) A permit shall not be issued to an out-of-state brand owner pasturing livestock in the same Oregon county as the owner of the Oregon conflicting brand.
(4) A Supervising Livestock Brand Inspector may authorize the use of an out-of-state brand at the time of brand inspection. Upon verifying the brand is currently registered in another state, the inspector will collect the $60 fee, brand facsimile and permit application and forward these items to the Brand Recorder for processing. If the brand is available for recording in Oregon, registration documents will be issued. If the brand is not available for recording in Oregon, the out-of-state brand permit will be issued.
