Information specific to the organization itself.

Just some business notes….

Good morning. We all had a great time at Macon and got quite a bit of work done. It was great to see so many watusi lovers. The Board of Directors voted to retain the percentage hardship program and we are continuing to receive applications on some very nice animals. We discussed at length the differing opinions on this program prior to making our decision. If you were hoping for a different result, please don’t feel we ignored your concerns. Any questions, suggestions or such for this or ANY of our programs and procedures are welcome and encouraged from everyone at any time.

More boring information from the Association….LOL. Many more registration applications keep coming in which is very exciting. We have new members, it is spring and we are getting new calves on our farms.  Some of us are trying to catch up on long neglected paperwork (oops, guilty!).  We can use snail mail to send in our applications, money and registration photographs but many of us have discovered the wonderful convenience of using email or texting to submit our photos. This is so wonderful and helpful from the old methods, BUT…
When sending in these photos please remember to include your name and the name of the animal that is in the photograph. Robin never wants to sound picky or pushy, but despite all of her wonderful qualities being psychic is not one of them. I personally, consistently forget to tell the sex of my calves (and horses and donkeys…). I have yet to find anyone that can guess without some input as much as I may try.

WWA Spring Fling

Well we should all be home after our Macon adventure.  The WWA  had a good sale with a number of young animals sold, a few adults and and several nice to very nice steers.  Everyone had something to  choose from.    We will post some of the social media accounts and stories from our event.  Here are a few to start with:

From Rachael Moore this great photo and caption:

I love this photo of Jacob. Lakota (Moore) took it on my phone while in the WWA meeting at Comfort Inn in Macon Mo. here is why I love it... This is the face of a man who was awake and working for 36+ hours with no sleep and getting home to load up with me and Lakota and the trailer full of animals to drive 2 hours in pouring rain and heavy winds to make our wishes to attend the Lolli Brothers sale and WWA meeting a reality. This is the face of a man who would do anything for his family. After all that exhaustion and stress he is still here smiling and having a good time. So lucky to have him. #blessed

Update on new rule changes

We previously reported that in our September, 2015 meeting the Board of Directors of the World Watusi Association approved a new hardship registration program for female percentage animals.  This has been a very successful program and many previously lost animals have been added to our breeding pool.

For a period of one year from September 23, 2015 through September 22, 2016 in an attempt to recognize animals that have been lost to the registry the World Watusi Association is offering a special category for the Hardship of mature female percentage animals. During this period a non-refundable $100.00 hardship fee, three (3) photos one each from the left side, right side and the front shall be submitted to the Registrar together with an application as complete as possible including the best estimate of the age of the animal and any known information. The animal will be accepted or rejected for registration based upon the ruling of the entire Board of Directors. The Board shall rule in the following categories: 1) Native Pure 2) ¾ Blood 3) ½ Blood or 4) Not a Watusi. Registration fee shall be $25.00 on animals accepted by the board.
After acceptance and registration of females, calves of the hardship female under the age of 12 months will be eligible for registration under the regular rules in Section 4 and 5.1 of Rules. Prior calves over 12 months of age shall be subject to the hardship rules herein.

 

  1.  Complete the existing Registration Application as much as possible.
  2. Provide three (3) photos of the animal for whom the application is submitted.  These photos may be submitted by email or by mail.  The poses are to be one from each side and the front of the animal.
  3.  Please provide as much information as possible.  On a separate paper please state where and when was the animal obtained?  Name and address of seller, name and address of breeder if available,   Any information provided when animal was purchased.  Any photos and/or information on the sire and dam.

Not having any information on the background of the animal submitted for hardship registration does not disqualify it from consideration, but will aid the Board in making a decision.

TO ALL MEMBERS OF THE WORLD WATUSI ASSOCIATION IN GOOD STANDING – PLEASE READ:

As you know your Association operates a website located at www.watusi.org. We routinely post information, photos and such about the Association and watusi cattle. We are embarking on an exciting new upgrade to our site. When finished we will have available our complete ‘Herd Book’ of pedigree records online in a searchable format. This is where our membership enters the picture. Firstly we are offering to publish a membership list online. We want to recognize your input and privacy so we ask that all of you advise the office of your desire to be included or your wish to not be shown.

In the pedigrees the breeder will show, which will include name, city and state. We also have this same information available for current owner as shown on the certificate of registration.

Sea Wolf

This is the late but well-known breedsire Sea Wolf, used for many years by Duane and Kolene Gilbert of Bar G Watusi. His lyre-shaped horns and speckled coat are seen in many of his offspring.

You can find Sea Wolf genetics in show champions and the bloodlines of many current foundation pure animals.
