About Ankole-Watusi CattleAbout Ankole-Watusi Cattle



rnrnAnkole-Watusi, or just Ankole, cattle go back many hundredsrnof years and their ancestry can be traced back to Europe and Asia as early asrn15000 BC. Today Ankole cattle are distributed mostly from Lake Mobutu to LakernTanganyika in eastern Africa.rnrn 

rnrnThey are very hardy animals and can live in very poorrnconditions with little water and poor grazing. Ankole cattle have a medium-longrnhead, a short neck with a deep dewlap and a narrow chest. Their horns arernextremely long and grow outward on either side of the head. They also havernfairly large ears through which they lose heat. Most often the coloration isrnred but fawn, black or pied are not uncommon.rnrn 

rnrnIn Africa the animals are highly prized as status symbols,rnfor ceremonial functions and not for their productivity.rnrn
