If you are a livestock or beef cattle producer who currently has a registered brand, it is time to reregister with the county. Even if recently registered, all brands, marks and tattoos now registered with any county clerk in Texas expired Aug. 30, 2021.
Not only do brands help to determine proof of ownership, but it is required by state law that they be registered every 10 years. If not renewed by Feb. 28, 2022, even previouslyrecorded brands could potentially, and legally, be registered by a new owner.
For more information on branding or identifying your livestock, contact your Atascosa County Extension Agent Dale Rankin at 830-569-0034 or firstname.lastname@example.org or the County Clerk’s office at 830-767-2511.
