According to County Clerk, Kim Carter, Article 144.044 of the Agriculture Code designates that the marks and brands that have been previously recorded will expire on August 30, 2021. The owners of the marks and brands will have from August 31, 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 Terry County Clerk’s Office. The fee for each brand or mark is $26.00
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!
