Freeze branding is a technique in which a supercold branding iron, properly applied to the animals hide, kills the color pigment producing cells. The result is that white or colorless hair instead of colored hair, grow at the brand site. Freeze branding is effective on both cattle and horses along with dogs. One advantage of freeze branding is that it produces a readable brand at any time of the year.
Things you will need:
Holding chute or some other positive device to keep the animal from moving
Container large enough so the irons can stand upright when the heads are submerged in the coolant Coolant-Dry Ice and Alcohol or Liquid Nitrogen
Electric clipper (surgical blade preferred)
Grooming brush for cleaning the brand site

99.9% alcohol (lower percentages contain water which can cause an ice layer to form
during branding and decrease the penetration of the cold through the skin)
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.
