In freeze branding, a super-cold branding iron, chilled in a mixture of liquid nitrogen or dry ice and alcohol, is applied to the animal’s hide, killing the pigment-producing cells. This results in growth of white hair instead of colored hair at the brand site, which becomes visible in approximately 3 months.
Many states have branding laws, and you should check with your county agent to find out more information about them. Liquid nitrogen, in many cases, can be obtained from a local artificial insemination organization.
Nasco Freeze Branders are cast of copper alloy for best temperature holding capability. This smaller brand may be used for calves, as the brand will increase in size as the animal grows. Allow extra delivery time.
