Morven Branding Board

Morven, Murweh Area

The branding of cattle is an integral part of raising cattle. The 'brands' are unique designs that belong to each cattle property, and 'brands' from surrounding properties can be viewed at the Morven Branding Board.

In the past, using a hot branding iron, the brands were branded onto the skin of the cattle, as proof of ownership. Today, many owners use ink stencils to 'brand' their cattle. A recent innovation is to insert micro chips under the skin of the cattle.

To celebrate the year of the Outback in 2002, a re-enactment of the Harry Redford Cattle Drive was carried out. As the Cattle Drive travelled through Morven, the Community got together to celebrate the occasion, by burning their local cattle brands into a piece of bloodwood, which became 'The Branding Board'.

The Branding Board is a collection of brands from surrounding properties who paid to have their mark placed on this board. Monies raised were then donated to the Starlight Foundation. Please take a look at each brand and you will notice some innovative designs. For cattle people often a quick glance at the brands is all they need to recognise the station that the cattle have come from.
