I Want To Brand A Cow But It Already Has A Brand Mark On It. Is This Legal

It depends. If the cow is rightfully yours, then you can brand it in any way. If however, the cow is not rightfully yours and you brand over it, then it is a felony punishable by at least three (3) years in a state penitentiary. You should never attempt to brand over, misbrand, or destroy a previous brand mark on a cow that is not yours.
