The Garza County Clerk’s office has almost 300 registered livestock marks and brands on file, according to Carla Sanchez, Deputy Count Clerk.
In accordance with Article 144.044 of the Texas Agriculture Code, on Wednesday, August 31, 2021, the Clerk’s office will begin the renewal process of the recording of animal marks, brands, and tattoos. Brand owners will have until Monday, February 28, 2022, to renew brand registrations. Marks, brands, and tattoos must be renewed within the registration period regardless of the date it was originally registered.
District and County Clerk Jim Plummer said, “According to state law, the renewal occurs every ten years.”
On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, any brand that is not renewed becomes “void” and an “open brand” for anyone to register.
