Some North Dakota brand inspection fees will change on July 1, according to a release from the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association.

The per-head inspection fee will be $1.50. The permanent horse permit fee will be $25. The registered feedlot permit fee will be $25. The per-head registered feedlot fee will be 50 cents.

The current fees for per-head inspection, permanent horse permit, registered feedlot permit and per-head registered feedlot are $1, $10, $20 and 10 cents, respectively. 

The fees have been the same since 2011, and before that hadn’t changed since 1992.

The North Dakota Legislature's Administrative Rules Committee reviewed these and other changes as part of revisions to the State Board of Animal Health's administrative rules on June 14.
