12 500 Holsteins in the middle of the desert
Dairy farming in Saudi Arabia is concentrated in the East of the country. In 1990 the country had 250 000 dairy cows. Operations of the Al Safi Dairy Est, a dairy farm at Al Kharj, south of Riyadh, are outlined. The farm is irrigated using subterranean water supplies brought to the surface by means of pumps. The farm has a dairy herd of 12 500 Holstein cows, with an average annual milk yield of 8000 kg/cow.
