Welcome to the Collin County Clerk's Marks, Brands and Tattoos Online!

The time has come to renew your livestock marks and brands!

The renewal period for all livestock marks, brands and tattoos is August 31, 2021 through February 28, 2022.  Texas Agricultural Code 144.

If you currently have a mark, brand or tattoo registered with the Collin County Clerk, you will receive a letter that contains a brand registration key that is unique to you and your brand. 

Beginning Tuesday, August 31, 2021, you can renew your marks, brands and tattoos by going to the online application and entering the key you received in your letter. Renewals can be submitted using your computer, tablet or smart phone. Once your renewal has been reviewed and approved by the County Clerk, you will receive your confirmation and certificate. Your renewed registration will be valid for a period of 10 years.

You may also renew your marks/brands/tattoos in person by coming to our McKinney office located in the Jack Hatchell Administration Building, 2300 Bloomdale Road, Suite 2106, McKinney Texas 75071.
