Default Ranch Names/Brands

What are some of the ranch names and brands out there and who do they belong to?

I have heard of ranches like rafter 7 or rafter p for example but have no Idea who they are associated with. Can you guys that have been around the business tell me/us what some of the ranch names and who they are associated with. I know that D&H cattle company is the pages, but I have no clue who some of the others are! Maybe knowing this information would be helpful to some of us when looking for "good bloodlines"!



Also when registering a bull/cow, I know they get an ABBI number if registering them but they are also given a number by the ranch that origionally owns them, what are these numbers and how do they come up with these?

There was talkabout this, seemed like every one had their own way of doing it. We decided to use the year the calf was born, and numbers off the cow. ex: calf born from our 101 cow, born in 2008, will be number branded 801. Thats just our way, were small, so its easy to keep track our small numbers.

Ok, lets try this, who is associated with what "cattle company?" D&H of course is the Pages, what are some of the others, like say Coffee or Kish, or Hargis,etc?

Hargis - DH left hip
Charlie Coffey - I think is EF on the right rib cage
Kish - a K on the left rib cage
Julio Moreno - JM on the left front shoulder
Billy Jaynes - BBD on left hip
Gene Baker - looks like a 7 on left hip

Dont quote me on these just going off some of the cattle that we have

i am pretty sure that there is an arrow piont on the lower diagional branch on the K

and the correct pronunciation of the brand is the "K spear"

Homestead Genetics brand is actually 7&6 together making it look like a upside down 2.
My brand is two G's one faceing left and one facing right, Twisted G Ranch.
Kish does have an arrowhead on the end of the K
Naccarato sure has an interseting brand with AN. He brands the bulls on their side and cows on their hip.
