Deep in the Qatari desert, a herd of cows stands in a vast shed, cooled by fans and jets of mist – each animal a key player in a plan to defy a trade boycott and make the kingdom self-sufficient in milk by next year.More than 6,000 more cows from the United States are due to arrive by February.It also shut Qatar's land border with Saudi Arabia, across which many perishable goods were imported, including almost 400 tons of fresh milk and yoghurt a day.Another consignment of 3,000 cows has been planned, but not yet ordered.By June, it says it is expecting to raise production of fresh milk and yoghurt to 500 tons a day, enough to meet domestic demand with 100 tons left over for export.
