Last Saturday saw the arrival of 515 pure Holstein dairy cows in Port Moresby. The cows arrived from New Zealand aboard a specially chartered freighter.
They were sourced from premium New Zealand herds and range in age from 13 - 20 months. Prior to departing New Zealand on the 18th of May, the cows were given all necessary vaccinations and some underwent artificial insemination in Taupo.
The cows were moved to their new home at Ilimo Farms in specially modified containers, where they will undergo the quarantine process under the supervision of NAQIA officers.
