Last chance to enter brand contest

Entries must be received by Aug. 2

The Bow Valley Ranche, along with the Southern Alberta Pioneers and Their Descendants, present Canada’s 15th Cattle and Horse Brand Contest. Enter now for a chance to win prizes, including a song about your brand to be performed this fall by Rob Lennard, Alberta’s ‘history wrangler.’

“I have always been interested and intrigued as to the story behind the unique cattle brands in Canada, and I thought Canada’s 150th birthday is a great time for Canadian cattle brand owners to share their story,” said Lennard.

Participants must submit (in 150 words or less) the story behind the brand, including how long it has been in your family and the date the brand was registered. Entries must be received by Aug. 2. For details and submission info, see
