Re-Recording Of " State Branding Irons Now Underway The brands division of the Miss- issippi Livestock Theft Bureau is currently re-recording state brand-" ing irons, according to Commission- er of Public Safety Tom Scarbrough. Brands recorded prior to June 30. 1957 have now expired. A second five-year registration period, which began July 1, will extend tltrough June 30, 1962. Ay brand recorded or r,-re.cord- "ed durng this period will l.  valid for the duration of the present five-year registration period. :Brands Officer B. F. Rodgtrs states "that all present brand own- ers were sent notices that their brands would expire last Juno SJ; however, many cattlemen and farmers have failed to rc-rcco:d their irons. Several letters wer 'b- turned to the department witb the notation, "MovedLef No For- warding Address." All brand owners who wish to I ! keep their recorded brand current| should notify the Departmen of Public Safety immediately, forward- ing to the department the reqmred two dollar ($2.00) regis.raIon fee. Use of a branding iron noL pro- perly recorded with the Depart- ment constitutes a" violation of be law, according to Hillie Coleman. livestock theft bureau director. He states that numeru liw- stock owner are brandin wi illegal irons, despite the fac that the present brand law went ito effect July 1, 1952. Many of me illegal irons were once registered with the Secretary of Star>, b-t were not re-recorded v/hen new leg- islation was adopted covering brand registration. Some have nver o been recorded with any agency.
