Change log


Terbish, Baasanjav 


Sanal talks about Kalmyk livestock: In Soviet times, in Kalmykia people raised mainly merino sheep. Later people began to keep the Kalmyk breed of sheep which has a round-shaped tail that may weigh up to 20 kilograms. The Kalmyk breed of horses does not have beauty or elegance, but it is a strong and hardy kind. Kalmyk cows are also good for meat. Their beef is delicious and they give about 3 liters of milk.
