Brand Renewal

Renewing brands online

Brands are registered for a five year period. When a brand is up for renewal, postcards are sent in early March to notify the brand owner. If brands have not been renewed, a final notification is sent by September 1. Official cancelation of un-renewed brands takes effect on October 1.

As of March, 2016 brand renewal mailing notifications provide instruction to access owner’s brand information online. This allows online renewal and change of physical and email addresses. Ownership cannot be changed online. For change of ownership during the five-year period, please contact the Brands Program office. Additional fees and a bill of sale are required when changing ownership of a brand.

To apply for an expired brand, or to apply for a new brand, please contact the Kansas Brands Program at 785-564-6609.

Brand fees can be paid via credit card. If you wish to use this method of payment, click here.
