About The Ankole Cattle

The Ankole-Watusi is a breed of domestic cattle. It derives from the Ankole group of Sanga cattle breeds of east and central Africa. The Ankole Long-Horned Cattle (also known as inyambo) have a dark brown coat and long white horns that curve outwards and then up, in the shape of a lyre.

Rearing The Famous Breed Of Ankole Cattle

The Ankole cattle do not need a lot of shelter since they can easily tend to themselves easily. All they need is a shed where they can escape to especially during rains. The good thing about these cattle is that they can survive on little food and water since they have a very good digestive system that can utilize moisture within the cow’s body as long as the food contains proteins.
