This breed is a variation of ‘old’ or native Tsigai breed, selected for milk yield. It is a medium large-sized breed. Their face and legs are black, dark brown or brown. The fleece is white but interlarded with coloured threads. A characteristic convex bridge of nose, so-called ‘ram nose’ is typical of the breed. The ewes are hornless, while the rams are horned, but they can be polled as well. They have large, long and pendulous ears. Their lamb weight gain is favourable, 300 to 350 g/day. Weights for ewes range from 50 to 60 kg, and ram weights vary from 75 to 90 kg. Their milk yield ranges from 150 to 200 litres.
