All Texas cattle and ranch brands and marks expiring

According to Edwards County Clerk, Olga Reyes, Article 144.044 of the Agriculture Code designates that the marks, brands and tattoos that are currently recorded with the County Clerk will expire on August 31, 2021. The owners of the marks, brands and tattoos will have from September 1, 2021 until February 28, 2022 to renew them.

On March 1, 2022, all marks and brands that have not been renewed will have no force or effect and will be available for use on a “first-come” basis.

Renewals are filed at the Edwards County Clerk’s Office. Local county charge is $26 PER brand, PER location, PER type of animal.

This is very important information. If you go in and file prior to August 31, you will still have to refile sometime after August 31. Texas brands all expire at the same time, regardless of when you filed for the brand.

So, pay attention to this date!! All you ranchers out there, be prepared to file your brand beginning August 31, 2021!
