    Meh, looks like it could have been designed by the same nutjob(s) that came up with our current license plate. Nothing particularly "Oklahoma" about it that I see.

    Just my 2¢ ... :drunk2:

    I don't know **** about cattle or marketing but I do know you definitely lost that bet. Have you ever admitted being wrong about anything?

    The original purpose of a brand or an ear mark was to identify a cow as the property of a particular owner, so everybody's right about that. It identified the critter on "the commons", in Europe in the old days, or in open range or poorly fenced country in America. It allowed a man to claim his property when it wandered off. Didn't have a damned thing to do with marketing.
    It may serve a secondary purpose these days as an advertising tool, but you can't always believe what you read on a poster down at Slim's Genuine Texas Bar Be Que.

    If you've ever heard or said the phrase 'Don't mess with Texas' then you've likely proven that state-level marketing works.

    Very true. And to reach back to Clay's comments, the number of BIG ranches with a well know brand is very small. And, I still say that when the cattle go to auction, most buyers don't even look at a brand. In a sense, the cow critter sells itself. And, most cattle ranches (and farmers with a few cows) are generally very small, so their "name" will not be known.

    Shoot, I've even had a cattle brand in the past.

    I grew up in the South and came to Oklahoma after 4 years Military Service. I live in Oklahoma by choice and overall its a great place. Other than Tornadoes and Allergies Oklahoma has been great to me.I have lived here longer than anywhere else by choice.
    I'm still not bashful about pointing some of the actual or perceived deficiencies that I see. One of my experiences is that some of the folks born here take things too personal when pointing out actual issues that need changing.
    I would do the same no matter what State I lived in including the State that I grew up in.
