The World Watusi Association just finished our ‘Spring Fling ‘ meeting and auction at the Lolli Bros Exotic Sale and our April board meeting. 39 members attended the World Watusi Association meeting representing 9 different states.
We addressed several pending issues as well as revisited some previous ones. The new up to date revised Rules and Fee Schedule are posted on this website. Some of the items are the controversial Hardship program that has been wildly successful. Although there are differences of opinion on the matter the Board of Director’s has extended the program indefinitely. We have recovered a number of quality animals into the breed as percentage animals as well as new enthusiasts and members from this program. The board examines any evidence and photographs of each individual animal submitted and determines if it qualifies as a percentage watusi or not.
As an incentive for membership we have continued and extended the program to award a free one year membership to any person or entity that has never been a member of the WWA that purchases a registered watusi at the Lolli Bros Exotic Animal Sale, Macon, Missouri; Triple W Exotic Sale, Cookeville, Tennessee; or at the Sycamore Springs Ranch Sale, Locust Grove, Oklahoma . Further we are offering a program to award $200.00 to the seller of the highest selling registered watusi steer at each of these sales.
As the registry only offers registration to Foundation Pure and Native Pure bulls and no hardship on any bull. We are encouraging steering of as many males as possible. Registration is available for percentage steers or Foundation Pure steers at $10.00 from birth to 24 months of age and $20.00 over 24 months. Steers sell very well and can be shown in sanctioned shows. We do allow hardshipping of steers.
The Board has approved a new program of keeping records of horn measurement. This will be fleshed out as time goes on, but the objective is to catalog horn length and breadth for future generations. Through this method we hope to establish a system by which an animal’s total scores measure up against the rest of the breed. The form is available under ‘Forms and Documents’ on this website to be downloaded and viewed. There will be two systems of records listed on the site, those submitted by the owner and the official score as submitted through Official Measuring Committee members.
Don’t forget that this is the week for the Macon, Missouri exotic animal sale and the World Watusi Association Spring Fling.
The Spring Fling is on Wednesday evening, April 11, 2018 at 7:00 pm (we erroneously said 6:00 in previous posts) in the conference room of the Comfort Inn, 1817 North Missouri St., Macon, Missouri. We will have a catered meal and our “Fun Auction” for fund raising. Bring your donations and your checkbook.
The sale of cattle will be on Thursday April 12, there are a number of very nice animals consigned. Come early, stay late, bring your checkbook. Representatives of the World Watusi Association will be on hand if you have any registration questions.
We will have a meeting of the Board of Director’s at 5:00 pm on Wednesday April 11 also at the Comfort Inn prior to the Spring Fling. All members are, of course, welcome to attend.
It is Spring again. For some of us the grass is starting to green up and we ar getting ready for those new calves. With Spring comes the Lolli Bros. Exotic Animal Sale in Macon, Missouri, www.lollibros.com. Watusi will sell on Thursday, April 7 and we will be having a social at 7:00p. m. CST Wednesday, April 6, 2016 in the conference room at the Comfort Inn Macon, Missouri. Besides food and watusi talk we will hold our Fun Auction of a variety of donated items, the proceeds from which help fund the Association. Sneak peek at auction items…coming from Texas. This is a professionally prepared Watusi skull. Not a big one, but at least a good starter kit!
These are a few of the other miscellaneous items offered. From Kentucky…
Please check around your barn and house to see if there is anything you would like to donate. All items are appreciated.

Just thought I would run this by everyone again about the fall meeting and sale as its just around the corner.I have the meeting room at the Comfort Inn reserved for the meeting, gathering and fun auction for the Wednesday night(9/23/15) prior to the sale on Thursday. It will be in the same location as it was this past April. Also Nolands catering will be serving the food. Will need to decide on what we want him to serve closer to date and a approx amount expected to attend.I have already approved this by Pat prior to planning this awhile back. Just thought I would run this back by everybody again. Also if anybody has any ideas or donations to help the Association raise money at this event they will greatly be appreciated. Also it would be great to have it on our website and shared around to help with the attendance. Thanks
