In the States Brahama bulls seem to have the nastiest disposition. Followed by Charolais.

Watusi were the gentlest although I hated walking through a group of them. Those horns are huge.

Brahmas get cantankerous here as well. grin

No so popular on coastal properties where mostly it's Herefords or Black Angus or a cross between them. Dairy breeds as well.
Out on the large holdings in hard country it's Santa Gertrudis, Zebu or Brahmas, big leggy cattle as they need to walk long distances between feed and water.. also they are more tick resistant.
With the big properties they only get mustered once a year, and more get missed than picked up in a muster.

Ive only seen pictures of Watusi cattle, they'd make me nervous as well . grin

Used to work a ranch that had a healthy herd of them. When I first started walking around them I was nervous. Almost every one of them was darned near a pet even though they were all raised roaming on a 20,000 acre ranch. Darnest thing. I was used to Herefords and Angus before then.

You sure wouldn't think they were friendly to look at them. grin

Do they have trouble with them bunched up in yards? Looking at them you would expect a lot of eye damage?

I never saw them with eye injuries or really any injuries. Then again we almost never had them in an enclosed space where they would get worked up.


With as gentle as they were we usually did every thing in the field and they were usually sold off to buyers in small numbers.

I had three Brangus cows in my small herd, and you did NOT want to get too close to their new calves! eek We saw one of them chase a coyote across my pasture, and it was running for its life. grin
