Description

Compiled by the Federal Writers' Project in Nebraska

"Nebraska cattlemen have more than 13,000 brands registered with the Division of Live Stock Brands in the Secretary of State's OFfice.

All the brands are a part of the folklore of the state, since their designs were originated by the stockmen themselves...Regardless of whether the brand design was made into a romantic flourish of the setting sun, or into a simple initial, it became a trademark and thing of pride for its owner. So all these cattle brands, apart from their practical worth in the stock business, have an aura of romance and strangeness."
