Rambo was born at the Rare Animal Survival Center in Ocala, Florida and proved the successful result of one of the original breeding programs in the United States. Rambo had it all, a body weight of 1600 pounds; horn circumference of 23 inches; 41 inch length to each individual horn and 54 inches from tip to tip (not measured along the curves). There is no question that this bull was one of the best representatives of this special breed. He was used by the famous Catskill Game Farm in their purbred program for most of his life and can be found in the background of many of the top animals of the Watusi breed.
It is with a heavy heart that we announce to our membership that Don Zavislan has passed away. Don was instrumental in the promotion and breeding of Watusi cattle and of the World Watusi Association. His contribution to this breed will continue as long as Watusi cattle are registered and bred. Don was a good friend to the breed and many of the WWA members, he will be missed.
His family requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Pueblo Zoo, 3455 Nuckolls Avenue, Pueblo, CO 81005.
The World Watusi Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and advancement of African Ankole- Watusi cattle.
