Kalmyk Bactrian
The Kalmyk breed is considered an improved one. They are large animals with well-devloped skeleton, musculature and hiar cover and have a great capacity for carrying loads and for work. The females have a live weight of 650-700 kg, net meat yield 56.8%, wool yield 8 kg. Their milk yield is 10-15% less than that of the Kazakh breed and the milk-fat content is 5.5%. The average live weight of breeding males is 760 kg (maximum of 1042 kg) with a meat yeild of 60% and wool yield 10-13 kg. Kalmyk Bactrians are reared primarily in the Kalmyk ASSR, Astrakhan region of RSFSR and in Guryev, Mangyshlak, Ural and Kzyl-Orda regions of the Kazakh SSR. Ref: Dmitriez, N.G. and Ernst, L.K.
