Brand History


The V Bar V brand is an old-timer, over 100 years old! It was first recorded by A.W. Bradford of Flagstaff in 1907.


About 1917, the brand become the property of C. Montgomery of Camp Verde, and in 1926, it was recorded to Ida May Swift Minotto.


When the Minottos formed their cattle company in 1927, the V Bar V brand was chosen as the most simple and easy to use.


The brand passed with ownership of the ranch to Marcus J. Lawrence in 1933, and on to subsequent owners.


Today, the V Bar V brand is registered to The University of Arizona.
