Although showing similar marking to a Holstein or Friesan, the Jaulan is an unrelated breed found in many mountainous areas of Syria. Found both with short horns and polled, the Jaulan is the strongest and most muscular of the Oksh group. The oxen are good work animals and the females have sufficient milk yields for family use. A mature female will weight between 300 and 400 kg.
