Interesting Watusi Cattle Hunting Information:

  • They got their name from the Tutsi tribes of Rwanda and Burundi.  These tribes would mix the blood and milk of the Watusi to form high-protein shakes.
  • Their horns are used as giant radiators to keep cool; in place of antifreeze, they have a network of honeycombed blood vessels.
  • The population of Watusis has decreased in Africa because of civil war, government-supported crossbreeding schemes, and economic upheaval.
  • These Ankole-Watusis are really cool because they are able to adapt to harsh environments, have a high butterfat milk, lean beef, and maternal abilities that trump those of other domesticated bovine.
  • This breed has been promoted since 1983 by the Ankole-Watusi International Registry.

    Watusi Hunt I have been wanting to harvest a Watusi safari-style for the meat! I wanted to make sure I got the best animal for my money and Ox Ranch did not disappoint with their animal quality. It was the most beautiful Watusi and I now know my family will enjoy the beef for many months to come.

Review your hunt!
