ankole watusi cattle

Occasionally we sell some of our watusi cattle. She is our kids' favorite watusi because of her extremely gentle nature.

The Sanga demonstrated most of the typical Zebu characteristics, such as pendulous dewlap and sheath, upturned horns, and a neck hump of variable size. Advertise Particularly remarkable are the cattle found in Uganda, Rwanda, and Burundi. Zoos and game parks in Germany, Sweden, and England were among the breeders of these cattle outside Africa. This low birth-weight makes Ankole-Watusi bulls useful for breeding to first-calf heifers of other breeds.
Guinness World Records lists a bull named CT Woodie with a horn circumference of 103.5 cm (40.7 in) and a steer named Lurch, with horns measuring 95.25 cm (37.50 in), as record-holders.
It is characterized by very large horns. Our selective breeding program strives to produce the largest horn in the breed along with different color variations. Medium-sized animals, with long, large-diameter horns, they attract attention wherever they appear. It is a landrace breed, a type of Sanga cattle and originally native to East Africa. A straight topline and a sloping rump are required; a neck hump is preferred, but not required. Asking $3500. We encourage prospective breeders to join the WWA. Sitemap They rarely need assitance when calving and can survive much better than other cattle on poor forage. Some were imported to the United States, and in 1960 a herd was started in New York State by cross-breeding some of them with an unrelated Canadian bull. Cow These studies will continue, because the AWIR has the establishment of utility value as a high priority. This low water and feed survival abilities have allowed them as a breed to not only survive for centuries in Africa, but also become established in Australia, Europe, North America and South America.
