Dairy Sector Not Cowed by Production

Israel’s agricultural industry paid tribute to one of its sacred cows, the dairy sector, at a ceremony celebrating the country’s production of its 1 billionth liter of milk.

The event took place days before the Shavuot holiday, when dairy products are traditionally consumed.

Agriculture Minister Yakov Tsur praised dairy farmers for their contribution to the Israeli economy.

He said the dairy sector is growing 4 percent annually.

“This is a very successful sector in Israel,” he told Israel Television, adding that its achievements are “very advanced.”
