In the case of any brand awarded after July 1, 1945, the recording certificate issued by the Department must define the area within this State where the brand may be used, and the position on the animal concerned, where it may be applied, and the use of the brand outside that area, or its application to other positions, without the written approval of the Department is unlawful.

Applications for the awarding and recording of brands or brands and marks must take precedence in the chronological order of their receipt at the established office of the Department.


The Department may refuse to award or record a brand known to be in use at the time in this State, or in an abutting county of an adjoining state, by a person other than the applicant therefor.
