Today am introducing to you all a special cattle called Ankole. The Ankole-Watusi, also known as Ankole longhorn,is a breed of cattle originally native to Africa. Its large, distinctive horns, that can reach up to 8 feet (2.4 m) from tip to tip, are used for defense and cooling by blood vesseled honeycombs.Ankole-Watusis weigh from 900 to 1,600 pounds (410 to 730 kg). Living in the savannas and open grasslands, their diet consists of grass and leaves. The animal is sometimes known as Ankole or Watusi, and is a breed of Sanga cattle. These are the main livestock in the cattle variety in Uganda.Medium-sized animals, with long, large-diameter horns, they attract attention wherever they appear. There are Ankole farms in Lake Mburo National park and it is a sight to see.

  1. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very difficult to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness
    and visual appeal. I must say you have done a superb job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Firefox.
    Exceptional Blog!
