A brand is proof of ownership and the best way to identity livestock.

The brand record contains a description of the design or elements of the brand, where on the livestock the brand is located, and any ear marks that are used to identify livestock.

Every 10 years, Texas requires that brands be re-registered in the county or counties in which livestock is operated. All brands that are currently registered will expire August 30, 2021.
Re-registration will begin August 31, 2021 and will conclude February 29, 2022.

How to Register a Brand:

The Mark and Brand Application may be printed and completed before coming into the Brazoria County Clerk’s office, but the application MUST be signed and acknowledged in front of a deputy of Clerk’s office or a notary public.

It is not required to complete this application in advance; the County Clerk’s office will provide forms in the office at the time of registration.

When a renewal or new brand is filed, the County Clerk’s office will verify the current owner of the brand or that the brand is not currently in use.
