  • Coleman County has county-level brand archives only.

    Brands must be registered in the county or counties in which you operate.  Every 10 years, Texas requires that brands be re-registered in the county or counties in which you operate.  The current effective date of the Mark and Brand application is August 31, 2021 to August 31, 2031.  The next brand re-registration period begins August 31, 2031 and lasts for 6 months, concluding on February 28, 2032.

    You may access the Mark and Brand application by clicking Here. See Instructions below

    Coleman County Marks and Brands Registration Instructions 

    Please note: Brands can be filed by mail.  However, the application must be notarized. 

    There is a $25.00 fee for recording each brand. Additional locations and each species are considered a separate brand and will require a new application and fee for each one. 

    . An additional $1.00 fee will be added to the filing fee if the acknowledgment is taken by the clerk's office. 

    Before registering your mark/brand, please check the following website for archived registered brands in your county and to learn more about the brand registration process: www.TSCRAbrands.com

    Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association (TSCRA) cooperates with the 254 County Court Clerks offices to provide the Texas Brand Registration site.

     Texas Agriculture Code - Marks and Brands                                    
    CHAPTER 144. MARKS AND BRANDS
    Section 144.041 of the Texas Agriculture Code addresses recording of marks and brands:
    §144.041. MARKS AND BRANDS TO BE RECORDED. (a) Each person who owns cattle, hogs, sheep, or goats shall record that person's earmarks, brands, tattoos, and electronic devices with the county clerk of the county in which the animals are located.
    (b) A person who owns a horse shall record an identification mark authorized by Section 144.001(b) with the county clerk of the county in which the animal is located.
    (c) The county clerk shall keep a record of the marks and brands of each person who applies to the clerk for that purpose.
    (d) A person may record that person's marks and brands in as many counties as necessary.
    (e) A person may record any mark or brand that the person desires to use if no other person has recorded the mark or brand, without regard to whether that person has previously recorded a mark or brand.
    (f) Not later than the 30th day after the date a county clerk receives a record relating to cattle or horses under this section, the clerk shall forward a copy of the record to the association authorized to inspect livestock under 7 U.S.C. Section 217a (Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association).
    (g) The recording of marks and brands at a point of sale for use by an association authorized to inspect livestock under 7 U.S.C. Section 217a does not serve as a record under this chapter.  An association authorized to inspect livestock under 7 U.S.C. Section 217a has no duty to verify ownership at a point of sale.
    (h) A county clerk may accept electronic filing or rerecording of an earmark, brand, tattoo, electronic device, or other type of mar for which a recording is required under this chapter or other law.
    §144.044. RERECORDING. (a) Not later than six months after August 30 of 1981 and of every 10th year thereafter, each person who owns livestock mentioned in this chapter shall have that person's marks and brands recorded with the county clerk, regardless of whether or not the marks or brands have been previously recorded.
    (b) The person who, according to the records of the county, first recorded the mark or brand in the county is entitled to have the mark or brand recorded in that person's name. If the records do not show who first recorded the mark or brand in the county, the person who has been using the mark or brand the longest is entitled to have it recorded in that person's name.
    (c) After the expiration of six months from each recording under this section, the marks and brands recorded prior to recording under this section have no force and effect and only the records made after each recording under this section may be examined or considered in recording marks and brands in the county.
    (d) Not later than the 30th day after the date a county clerk receives a record relating to cattle or horses under this section, the clerk shall forward a copy of the record to the association authorized to inspect livestock under 7 U.S.C. Section 217a.
