The Kalmyks are an ancient nomadic nation, one of the world's most experienced cattlemen. To get to know how the centuries-old traditions are preserved the presenter Andrei Ivanov set out to the largest stud farm of Kalmykia «Kirovsky». The territory of the pedigree factory makes up around 55 thousand hectares, and horses, sheep, oxen and even camels pasture on it. Anderi Ivanov rode a horse of Kalmykia breed around the steppe, viewed how the pedigree oxen are bred, visited a sheep barber's shop and even cut himself a sheep. After a work day the presenter of RTG TV visited the director of the factory Badma Garyarev, learned to prepare national tea of Kalmykia «dzhomba» and made sure that the Kalmykys are the most hospitable nation of Russia.
