I hope this email finds everyone well. I’ve owned my bull “Bar G Kato” for 1.5 years and have thoroughly enjoyed him. I’m down to only 2 breeding cows, I’m going to sell one of those soon (BWS Miss Tuli), and I have a lot of young heifers. So now that blood tests have confirmed both of my big cows are bred, I have decided to sell my big bull and let my heifers grow up and use a young bull. I have attached a couple recent pictures of Kato, his pedigree, and a few of the calves he’s had so far. Duane Gilbert owns a 2015 son out of Kato, I own a 2016 son, and Pat Burnett has quite a few 2016 calves out of him this year after leasing Kato from me last year. Kato not only looks great, he produces great too. He’s ready to work your cows now to bring color and horn to your offspring.
He’s a registered Foundation Pure Watusi Bull, the pictures of him were taken 10-11-16, his DOB is 8-25-11. His sire “Bar G Kulow” is a very successful Watusi bull owned by Duane Gilbert (Bar G) in Utah. His Dam “Dixie Star” is a full sister to the famous TW Bwana who produced outstanding offspring over the years. Bar G Kato has bred everything in my pasture so I’m going to offer him for sale for $7,000. He’s proven and makes colorful babies. He’s slow moving and will eat out of my hand but he can still act “bully” occasionally. Located in Bullard, Tx just south of Tyler, Tx but delivery is available and negotiable. I travel all across the US so don’t feel that you’re too far away. Please email or call with any questions and be sure to check out my website. Thanks for your time!

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.
