Ulfborg-Vemb was a municipality (Danish, kommune) in the former Ringkjøbing County on the west coast of the Jutland peninsula in west Denmark.

By January 1, 2007 Ulfborg-Vemb municipality ceased to exist due to Kommunalreformen ("The Municipality Reform" of 2007). It was merged with existing Holstebro and Vinderup municipalities to form the new Holstebro municipality. This created a municipality with an area of 790 km2 and a total population of 56,204.

Ulfborg-Vemb covered an area of 226 km2, and had a total population of 6,959 (2005). Its mayor was Niels Kristian Jensen, a member of the Venstre (Liberal Party) political party.

The main town and the site of its municipal council was the town of Ulfborg.

Neighboring municipalities were Trehøje Municipality and Holstebro Municipality to the east, Struer Municipality and Lemvig Municipality to the north, and Ringkøbing Municipality to the south. To the west is the North Sea. Part of its northern border was defined by Nissum Fjord.

The municipality was created in 1970 due to a kommunalreform ("Municipality Reform") that combined a number of existing parishes:

  • Bur Parish
  • Gørding Parish
  • Husby Parish
  • Madum Parish
  • Staby Parish
  • Sønder Nissum Parish
  • Ulfborg Sogn Parish
