The CATL Salutes Longtime

Friend & Fellow Longhorn


Col. Fraser E. West


The CATL recently lost one of its most beloved members, Col. Fraser E. West, who passed away January 2nd 2015. Fraser started raising longhorns in 1973 at his ranch Ione, known as The Westhaven Longhorn Ranch. Fraser was founding member of the CATL and previously served as President in 1989-90 and as a Director. His knowledge of the longhorn breed was extensive and respected by all. Fraser was an active breeder for many years, remaining active up to our most recent show last year. He sold his cattle in auctions to breeders all across the country. Fraser was also highly regarded as a judge of longhorn show cattle. His expertise of the finer qualities for longhorn cattle enhanced the knowledge of his fellow breeders. He was a tireless participant in many Texas Longhorn shows. His presence, sense of humor and devotion to the CATL and the longhorn breed were inspirational and will be deeply missed by his many friends in this association.
