From South Florida to across the nation, farmers and ranchers have relied on branding irons to mark their livestock so they can easily distinguish whose cattle belongs to who. The practice of using these important and customizable tools for identification has been in effect for centuries and is still used to this day. For ranchers in the Treasure Coast, Florida area, Domer’s Inc. has set the standard for customizable branding irons for over 90 years.
Available Custom Branding Irons at Domer’s
When it comes to custom branding irons, Domer’s offers a few different options to choose from to satisfy your specific branding need.
- Traditional Branding Irons: These are your classic branding irons that you heat up over an open fire. However, they can warp overtime if exposed to a variety of temperatures.
- Electric Branding Irons: While these irons are not fire-heated, they get plenty hot. In fact, electric branding irons offer more evenly distributed heat, resulting in a clearer brand. Also, not having to rely on open fire heat increases branding speed and efficiency.
- Freeze Branding Irons: If you have difficulty getting electricity from where you are branding, then freeze branding irons might be the way to go. Rather than using heat to brand the cattle’s hide, freeze branding irons use dry ice and ice cold temperatures to brand a shaved patch on the cow’s body by altering its hair follicles.
Additional Benefits of Hot Branding Irons
While there are advantages to both hot and cold branding techniques, hot branding irons, either fire-heated or electric, are inexpensive, fast, durable, and versatile as they can be used to brand items other than cattle such as wood and leather.
