We’ve just setup a Google+ page for the association. We’ll be posting organization updates as well as sharing information about Watusi cattle over there. We’re looking into creating a Watusi community too.
The World Watusi Association has been utilizing the services of the International Texas Longhorn Association in Glen Rose, Texas for our business office and registration work. Although we have been very pleased with the professional handling provided by the ITLA, computer programing changes have made it more viable for us to move our office. The good news is that the Registrar that you are all familiar with, Robin Hancock, has agreed to continue to provide us with her able assistance.
Well as the Holdiay season races forward we are all probably knee deep in preparations for the coming events. We just wanted to update and remind our members of a few items. Remember that our memberships run from January through December. If you have not done so you might take this time to send your renewal into the office in Texas before you forget.
We want to welcome our newly elected Board Member, Derrick Passey of Raymond, Alberta, Canada. We will be introducing Derrick here at Watusicattle.com with a farm focus feature in the next few weeks. We have posted multiple of his charming photos over the past few years here on the website. You can search through the posts to see them.
The World Watusi Association would like to wish Happy Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of our members and enthusiasts. Keep warm and safe.
