DOHA: Qatar Airways Cargo has transported the country’s first two shipments of 330 Holstein cows from Europe on a Boeing B777 freighter, says a press release.
These initial shipments are part of a 4,000-head herd that marks the launch of a completely new industry for the State of Qatar.
Qatar Airways Cargo has been appointed to charter more than 20 cattle shipments from Europe, the US and Australia in the next few weeks. Upon arrival at Hamad International Airport (HIA), the cattle were carefully transferred to Baladna Farm, a huge livestock farm in Qatar.
