Beaver Co-op Cattle Company



  • Existence: 1864 - 1895


The Beaver Co-Op Cattle Company (1864?-1895?) was a cattle herding company located in Washington County.

The company was one of several livestock companies owned by the Beaver Co-op. Employees of the Beaver Co-op Cattle Company cared for and herded cattle around southwest Washington County, including areas such as Cove Fort. The co-op also owned a ranch around the east fork of the Sevier River. Isaac Turley served as leader of the company from about 1864-1876 before moving to Arizona. Isaac Riddle also served as president following Turley, and Watkin Reese succeeded Riddle. In 1894, the company had a dispute with M. M. Steele over legal ownership of cattle. Since then, no further information about the company is available.
