Oman has announced it will import 1,600 cows from Australia to begin the sultanate’s $260m (100m Omani rials) dairy farm and factory project.
Mazoon Dairy Company, owned by the government, is expanding dairy production and manufacturing capacity with a new 15 sq km farm and production plant. A total of 8,250 cows are expected to be imported by 2020, enabling Oman to build up its supply chain to be a self-sufficient dairy producer.
