Online Registration for Livestock Marks, Brands and Tattoos.

Texas, the only state to allow registration at the county level, requires anyone who owns livestock to mark, brand or tattoo their animals.  These marks, brands and tattoos must be registered with the County Clerk in the county in which the animals reside.
