Spring Fling Update – reprint for information

The World Watusi Association just finished our ‘Spring Fling ‘ meeting and auction at the Lolli Bros Exotic Sale and our April  board meeting.   39 members attended the World Watusi Association meeting representing 9 different states.

We addressed several pending issues as well as revisited some previous ones.  The new up to date revised Rules and Fee Schedule are posted on this website.  Some of the items are the controversial Hardship program that has been wildly successful.  Although there are differences of opinion on the matter the Board of Director’s has extended the program indefinitely.  We have recovered a number of quality animals into the breed as percentage animals as well as new enthusiasts and members from this program.  The board examines any evidence and photographs of each individual animal submitted and determines if it qualifies as a percentage watusi or not.

As an incentive for membership we have continued and extended the program to  award a free one year membership to any person or entity that has never been a member of the WWA that purchases a registered watusi  at the Lolli Bros Exotic Animal Sale, Macon, Missouri;  Triple W Exotic Sale, Cookeville, Tennessee; or at the  Sycamore Springs Ranch Sale, Locust Grove,  Oklahoma .    Further we are offering a program to award $200.00 to the seller of the highest selling registered watusi steer at each of these sales.

As the registry only offers registration to Foundation Pure and Native Pure bulls and no hardship on any bull.  We are encouraging steering of as many males as possible.  Registration is available for percentage steers or Foundation Pure steers at $10.00 from birth to 24 months of age and $20.00 over 24 months.   Steers sell very well and can be shown in sanctioned shows.  We do allow hardshipping of steers.

The Board has approved a new program of keeping records of horn measurement.  This will be fleshed out as time goes on, but the objective is to catalog horn length and breadth for future generations.  Through this method we hope to establish a system by which an animal’s total scores measure up against the rest of the breed.  The form is available under ‘Forms and Documents’ on this website to be downloaded and viewed.  There will be two systems of records listed on the site, those submitted by the owner  and the official score as submitted through Official Measuring Committee members.

Fun Auction
Just a few items offered at the ‘Fun Auction’, the cute picture now adorns the waiting room of Dr. Cree Sisneros in Mt. Pleasant, Texas; the beautiful WWA stainless steel logo is on display at Mariposa Ranch in Aubrey, Texas. The rum cake was a real winner.
