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.

Lolli Bros Exotic Animal Sale

As most of our members know, Watusi cattle are occasionally offered for sale at auctions, and because of the uniqueness of the breed these offerings are quite often at exotic animal sales.

Probably the most well-known of these sales is the Lolli Brothers exotic sale held every season in Macon, Missouri. Watusi and their enthusiasts can usually be found here, particularly in the spring and fall.

The next sale is being held on Thursday, September 24 in Macon, Missouri (the WWA also holds its annual membership meeting in conjunction with this sale).  See the consignments pictured below and more here.

Here are some animals consigned by Heiken’s Ark of Des Moines Iowa.
