Oregon Historical County Records Guide

Malheur County Records Inventory

Marks and Brands Records

Series documents the registration of marks and brands by livestock owners and logging interests in order to clearly establish ownership. Records include registers and certificates. Information includes owner's name and address; diagram of animal showing location and style of mark and brand; written description of mark and brand; and filing date. Types of livestock registered include horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, and poultry. Log brands are also documented.

No county generated marks and brands registration records were located in the inventory. However, the Malheur County Library has published marks and brands books that include Malheur County for a number of years.
