At Dr. King’s® Natural Meats & Carolina Bison®, we are excited to announce our new USDA labels for Yak and Watusi meat. As many of you know, we have been in the meat industry and raising bison and Watusi since 1985. This industry is part of our mission, because wild meats offer such tremendous health benefits. We supply natural meats to thousands of retailers, and we’re now happy to expand our meat offering to all of our partners in the industry to buy at wholesale prices. We are offering all cuts of Watusi and Yak, including but not limited to: ground, rib-eye steak, strip steak, sirloin steak, and filet steak. In addition to all the health benefits of Yak and Watusi meat, both offer unique, quality flavor profiles. Our pricing is comparable to our bison meat; please see attached Watusi and Yak meat prices. Providing these quality meats on your farm and website will help build your business and promote these very special breeds. It is our intention to work together as a unified force to best grow these specialty industries. It is essential to have an uninterrupted, seamless supply of product to build a business. We have approximately 1,000 head of Yak and Watusi available for harvest. Our theme is, “It takes a team to fulfill the dream.” Check out our website www.drkings.com/farms for more info about our meats and also our available inventory. Or call (828)236-1659.

The World Watusi Association has started a yearly scholarship to be awarded to a graduating high school senior. Details for applications for the 2018 scholarship will be posted at a later date.
We would like to congratulate our very first scholarship recipient, Olivia Woods, daughter of Lewis and Summer Deline of Reed City, Michigan. She attends Pine River High School.
Olivia received the green hand award along with outstanding junior and proficiency award for exotic animals throughout the FFA along with competing in the job interview competition, and making 4th in the state this year and made it to state last year. She has shown four different Watusi cows.
Olivia plans to attend State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology in Cobleskill, New York, for butchering.
Do any; of us ever wonder what other watusi breeders do in their ‘spare’ time. Richard and Pam Jackson, long time breeders and enthusiasts are just one example. Richard served on our board of directors for many years and Pam is currently our secretary. This is them in their private world.
We all know that most animals produce around an equal number of males and females over time. Because in breeding situations the number of males needed is exponentially less than females one solution is to steer some of those extra males.
Will Ross of Ross Ranch Horns in Brownsboro, Texas rossranchhorns.com submitted to us this information on his young steer, BWS Old Red. This is a four year old steer with phenomenal growth and bloodlines. Talk about a pasture ornament.
Joy Rider shared this photo of one of his cows. Per Joy:
“Got these of Beauty standing around in the shade and near the pond. Not good pics but shows current horn size. Dam to BWS Boy Named Souix of Lakotas…..She just turned 4 years old and has had 2 flashy bulls thus far. Come on heifers…..”
Some people just casually own a bovine or two for meat or breeding, but Barry an Kim Retchloff of Rogersville, Missouri have taken their watusi inspiration to a whole new level.
When Black Walnut Spring and the Moffatts from Oklahoma went for a visit at the Retchloff, Rusted Rail Ranch recently they sent in this note. “Got a tour of their new home and barn. Super impressive and enjoyable. Most noticeable through my eyes was that the large Canadian built log home and 3 story barn was filled with watusi memorabilia, in particular just one watusi-HA Lance Fire. Barry loved this bull (son of HA Ring of Fire) and it was obvious in how he incorporated it into their new home. Below are just a few examples but there are many more. Not shown here are his truck grill, cut rock walk way, entry way gates and even down to the towel holders in some bathrooms, all custom made and patterned after Heikens Ark Lance Fire.”
The rock painting shown in the gallery below is painted on a rock by a Colorado artist commissioned by Kim as a surprise for Barry.
