Every 10 years, Texas ranchers are encouraged to re-register their brand in the county or counties in which they run cattle, sheep, goats etc.
Do I have to re-register my brand?
Yes. In Texas brands have to be re-registered every 10 years. Brand re-registration always begins in the year ending with a 1. For example, the next brand re-registration period begins August 31, 2011, and closes February 29, 2012. If you do not re-register within that period, then your brand is up for grabs by someone else. Brands must be re-registered within that period regardless of the dates they were originally registered.
The first day you can re-register a brand is August 31, 2011.
