New rule changes – Percentage Female Hardship

In our September meetings the Board of Directors has finalized a new registration program for percentage female animals.

For a period of one year from September 23, 2015 through September 22, 2016 in an attempt to recognize animals that have been lost to the registry the World Watusi Association is offering a special category for the Hardship of mature female percentage animals. During this period a non-refundable $100.00 hardship fee, three (3) photos one each from the left side, right side and the front shall be submitted to the Registrar together with an application as complete as possible including the best estimate of the age of the animal and any known information. The animal will be accepted or rejected for registration based upon the ruling of the entire Board of Directors. The Board shall rule in the following categories: 1) Native Pure 2) ¾ Blood 3) ½ Blood or 4) Not a Watusi. Registration fee shall be $25.00 on animals accepted by the board.
After acceptance and registration of females, calves of the hardship female under the age of 12 months will be eligible for registration under the regular rules in Section 4 and 5.1 of Rules. Prior calves over 12 months of age shall be subject to the hardship rules herein.

Herdsire Spotlight: Burnett’s Republican AKA “Oreo”

Burnett’s Republican AKA “Oreo”

Purity: Foundation Pure
Birth date
April 24, 2010
Breeder: Jessica Alvarez / The Watusi Ranch

Burnett’s Republican, or Oreo as breeder Jessica Alvarez calls him, was purchased by The Watusi Ranch in 2012 at 2 years old. Sired by Heiken’s Ark Bon Fire and out of dam China Doll, this foundation pure bull’s black and white genetics have proven to be dominant, coloring 5 out of 6 of his 2015 calves out of 5 red and white cows.

As you can tell from the photos below, Oreo is a very photogenic Watusi bull whose favorite pastime is sticking his horns in the dirt and tossing it in the air. The Watusi Ranch has several of his calves for sale; visit them on Facebook or send them an email.
