Check for brands for sale
Check with your state brand inspector's office or local governing agency to see if they keep a list of brands for sale. Older brands are often sold with ranches or by themselves.
Choose a distinctive brand
Make sure the brand you are considering is distinctive and readily recognized.
Record the brand
Record the acquired brand in your state brand inspection office or with the local governing agency. Remember, unrecorded brands offer little or no protection and result in confusion.
