‘Alatauskaya’ is the Russian name used in Kyrgyzstan for the Ala-Tau.

Kyrgyzstan prizes their Alatauskaya cattle for their adaptability to the local weather conditions which consist of dry summers and severe winters.

In 2002, a Alatauskaya population of 824,000 was reported for Kyrgyzstan, however no population data has been reported since then.
