Old herd photo our archives Charlie “Three” Schreiner III, whose family had a long history with the Texas Longhorn, established the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America in 1964. It was another Longhorn enthusiast, Harry Pon of Oregon, who gave him the idea, but Schreiner believed that an organization created to honor the Texas Longhorn belonged in Texas. He filed for incorporation and the TLBAA held their first meeting in September 1964 with 30 members in attendance. It was at that initial meeting that officers were elected, by-laws were written and Charlie Schreiner III was elected as the organizations first President.
