Line 14: Your I.D. number can be made up of any combinations of numbers, it is your choice. You must use a different number on each animal. For instance some people would start with the number 1 either over or under the year. Examples 1/7 or 7/1. Others would prefer the numbers in a straight line. Example 17 or 71. It is much easier to keep track of numbers if they are consecutive. For example 1/7 on the first calf you brand, the second would be 2/7, etc. These numbers along with the holding brand must be on animals before you can register them with the International Texas Longhorn Association.
