06 Jul Heifers from Holland
Minha Farms placed an order of 200 Dutch heifers of the Frysian Holstein breed. A delegation of Minha Farms travelled to Ommen in the Netherlands in July to arrange the shipment and build ties with the Dutch dairy sector. The Dutch heifers will be transported by an exclusive charter plane and are expected to arrive in Lahore in October 2016.
Real cattle class: Transport by air
We will ensure animal welfare during their flight by carefully following the IATA Live Animals Regulation, the worldwide industry standard for transporting fauna and animals by air. Three environmental factors are taken into consideration to ensure maximal comfort during the already stressful journey for the heifers: temperature, relative humidity level, and cargo compartment carbon dioxide (CO2) concentration. This is what we call, real cattle class!
