William Normand Catley

William Norman Catley was a native of Saskatchewan, born on his fatherís homestead on the southern rim of the Qu'Appelle Valley near Craven in 1885. He received his education at the local school, and lived and farmed in the area all his life.

In 1905, Norman Catley purchased a few purebred Hereford females, and over the years built up a herd of cattle of highest quality. Individuals from the Catley herd won high awards in livestock shows, and there was always a brisk demand for Catley stock among other breeders.

In 1925, Norman Catley was appointed Secretary-Treasurer of the Saskatchewan Hereford Association, and carried out these duties with distinction for a long period of years. He served as president of the Canadian Hereford Association, president of the Saskatchewan Cattle Breeders Association, and vice-president of the Western Canada Livestock Union. He was also a director of the Regina Industrial and Agricultural Exhibition Association, and president in 1954.

With a keen eye for quality in the breed, Norman Catley was one of a small group of cattlemen selected by the Saskatchewan Hereford Association to purchase a number of outstanding Hereford bulls to be used to improve the breed in the province.

Norman Catley served his community in many ways. In 1906 he was elected secretary-treasurer of the local school district, and continued in that position for many years. He was a councillor for the Local Improvement District from 1908 to 1911; president of the Craven Telephone Company from 1923 to 1947; president of the Lumsden Agricultural Society, and first Saskatchewan Wheat Pool delegate in his sub-district in 1924.

A member of the Saskatchewan Live Stock Board for many years, Norman Catley was the recipient of the Boardís Honour Scroll, in recognition of the esteem and respect in which he was held by the livestock breeders of the province. At the time of his death in 1971 he was still active as a farmer and stockman. and in service to the community in which he spent his life.
