2016 – 2017 Board of Directors

We are pleased to announce the results of our election for the Board of Director’s for the 2016 through 2017 year.  We are excited to welcome two new members to our Board, Sheri Gurr of Roosevelt, Utah and Matt Moffatt of Piedmont, Oklahoma.  Pat Burnett was reelected for another three year term.  We are all excited to start another year and look forward to further supporting our little association and these wonderful cattle.

In addition to the general election we have elected a new slate of officers for the 2016-2017 year.  Our new (re-elected) President is Pat Burnett of Wills Point, Texas; our new Vice President is Garett Judd of Edmonton, Kentucky; our new (re-elected) Secretary is Pam Jackson of Water Valley, Kentucky and our new Treasurer is Sheri Gurr of Roosevelt, Utah.

We want to express our deep appreciation and gratitude to our outgoing board member, Richard Jackson who has been an invaluable member of this association and board for many, many years.     We would also like to thank Joy Rider for serving as our Treasurer for the past few years.  We know our association will continue to depend on both of these valuable members for years to come

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.
