Cattle Branding Equipment

We sell cattle branding equipment that affords cattle handlers/owners the exceptional ability to identify the different cattle in their flock. Humans have been using brands to identify livestock animals for thousands of years. In modern times, styles of identification of cattle/ livestock have evolved to involve arrays of methods including ear tags, tattoos, and skin branding.

 

Noteworthy Facts

  • Branding first began in 2700 BC with the Egyptians on oxen and other livestock. Through exploration and colonization, branding was later introduced to the Americas in the early 16th century.
  • Branding is the main method of permanent identification and proof of ownership for livestock.
  • On many occasions, brands are used to identify specific animals by branding a number or shape on their side, shoulder, or hip.
  • Branding can also be employed in purebred cattle to identify an animal’s origin or family.
  • In some countries, cattle brands are registered with the appropriate sectors/ authorities for proper identification.

 

Methods of branding

  • Branding was once mostly done using hot iron that had been heated in a fire pit or barrel. These hot brands tan the hide and leave a scar where the brand was placed.
  • Electricity is now commonly used to heat the branding iron. The electric ones cost more but do better branding jobs. In addition, they are slightly less painful as they are at the right temperature that will not cause overburn of the hides.
  • Freeze branding has also entered the cattle branding market and this works by killing the pigment-producing cells, resulting in white hair regrowth.
  • Both branding methods (i.e. hot or cold branding)  can be easily read from a distance when done properly.
  • The branded cattle may bawl and budge for a moment but be assured that no long-term pain will be inflicted on the animal.
  • Excessive branding is however discouraged because it can decrease the leather value of the hide.

 

How to brand a cattle

  • Hold the cattle to avoid any sudden movement when branding is applied. This can be done using shoots or cattle crushes.
  • Then apply the brand to the cattle in a rolling motion for no more than five seconds. Firm pressure should be applied to the equipment to ensure a recognizable and conspicuous brand is made.
  • Avoid branding wet cattle as this could cause scaling and an unrecognizable brand. If animal hair is so long, it might help to cut it short.
