That's not true. Utah also has full time brand inspectors and I would bet Wyoming, Montana, Nebraska, Colorado, Nevada, Texas, New Mexico, and arizona also have brand inspectors because every time cattle or other livestock change hands or ship out of state they have to have a brand inspection and every animal has to be looked at.
