Livestock Brand Program
An Invitation from Event Center & Fairgrounds Director Emily Sanchez
Dear Livestock Brand Holder,
Montrose County is proud to unveil the 93,000 square foot Event Center as part of the Montrose County Fairgrounds. It is an exciting venture that provides an opportunity to create a positive economic impact on the local community, and entire Western Slope. The Event Center will be used to host an array of events ranging from equine and livestock shows to concerts, competitions, and trade shows.
Part of the challenge in establishing the Event Center is to create a venue that accommodates the diverse needs of our community while balancing our rural agricultural heritage. My goal is that the facility represents our community’s roots.
As such, local and regional livestock brands will be on display in the lobby of the Event Center. The brands will be expertly crafted out of metal (8-inch square size) and featured prominently as visitors walk through the doors. Additionally, there will be a centrally located key that communicates the brand and the associated family or ranch.
My vision is to give character to the Event Center while preserving the heritage of the Western Slope. I would like to invite you and your family to become a part of this memorable facility and help proudly showcase the positive impact that farmers and ranchers have on not only Montrose County, but the entire Western Slope. For $250, your livestock brand will be displayed (as described above) for the lifetime of the Event Center. Additional family brands may be displayed for $175 each.
If you are interested in participating, please fill out the brand application form and return it, along with payment to the Fairgrounds offices. Please don’t hesitate to contact me with any questions.
I appreciate your consideration and look forward to working with you.
Fairgrounds & Event Center Director
