Spring Fling Reminder

Just a quick reminder to all of our members and other Watusi enthusiasts.  The WWA will have its annual Spring Fling get-together on Wednesday evening, April 11, 2018 at 6:00 pm in the conference room of the Comfort Inn,  1817 North Missouri St.,  Macon, Missouri.  This is a great opportunity to share your stories, photos, brochures, animals for sale and such with others.  We will have a meal catered by Noland’s in Macon and will offer our Fun Auction fund raiser.

We will accept all donated items for our auction and usually receive many fun items such as skulls, artwork, food items, hot sauce, candy, local items from your home state, your imagination is your limit.  We often have African items and Watusi related materials.

Any questions of items that are of interest can be discussed.  Any suggestions to help our association run more favorably are welcome.

Watusi animals will be at auction on Thursday, April 12 so bring your checkbooks.  This year the WWA is offering a free membership to any first time buyer purchasing a registered animal at this sale.

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.
