It is a white breed with attractive meat shapes (mutton conformation), related to the Merinos. They are characterized by good maternal traits and progeny of 1.4 to 1.8. Their inclination to out-of-season breeding is good, and they can be mated at any time of the year, unlike many mutton breeds. The lambs have a good weight gaining ability (320-360 g). Mature weights for ewes range from 70 to 90 kg, and ram weights vary from 100 to 140 kg.
