Ankole Cattle are a regal, graceful and resilient ancient humped cattle arising out of Uganda, the land of milk, the Pearl of Africa. They have exceptionally large, long and magnificent ivory horns which seem to touch the clear blue skies.
Their horns knocking together with the tone of African drums while they move through the land with the rustle of a veld fire.
Ankole are intelligent, fertile and adaptable built to survive in the harshest of African climates and proven to stand the test of time.
A trademark of the Ankole are their contrasting white horns and velvet fine coat. Their horns used for display, fighting, protection, social hierarchy, thermoregulation, communication as well as providing them with the ability to break branches enable them to browse during times of drought. The Ankole share the traits of strong family bonds of their originators.
All our Ankole cattle are descendants of the Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni’s Royal Ankole herd.
