Qatar will be self-sufficient in milk by next July, thanks to boycott-busting cows flown in to boost supplies after neighbouring Gulf states severed links with Doha, a firm said Tuesday.Nearly six months after the eruption of a bitter political crisis which has rocked the region, the man in charge of the soon-to-be 14,000 animals, said Qatar would be able to meet all its own milk needs by the middle of next year.Before the crisis, Qatar largely relied on dairy imports from Saudi Arabia, especially milk.By next February, he added, there will be 14,000 Holstein cows able to produce nearly 400 tonnes of milk per day, enough to meet Qatar's needs.
