The triangle brand with the numbers is located on his right haunch. Anyone have ideas how I can find out where my baby came from? Thank you!
You know brandings can be hard to track back. I don't know what the laws are in your area, but I know here anyone can make up their own brand with a licence which is easy to get. You pay a one time fee, make sure no one has it within certain amount of miles from you, and you're set; so technically speaking, you might have repeat brandings from all over the continent.
See if you have some livestock governing body (livestock association maybe) that deals with brandings. You should have one general place that you might be able to call and see if they can help you identify who's brand this was.
Not sure how else to figure it out.
