Airlift Milks Qatar + Pumping Traffic

Qatar Milks Airlift

  Moutaz Al Khayyat believes that you never outgrow your need for milk.
  So the entrepreneur and chairman of Qatari construction firm Power International Holding initiated the move to airlift Holstein dairy cows from Baladna Livestock Production in Budapest to a purpose-built dairy farm near Doha that has capacity for 4,000 animals to help provide fresh milk during the recent ongoing rift between Qatar and the Gulf Arab Allies.
  Baladna reports the bovine airlift will continue with dairy cow imports being readied from USA, Germany and Australia.
