Fargo Jet Center (Booth No. 7346), an FBO in Fargo, N.D., has signed an agreement with Global Beef Consultants to support an airlift of cattle to Kazakhstan. Approximately 160 Angus and Hereford cattle will be transported on each of 12 flights from Fargo to Kazakhstan. Fargo Jet Center has already loaded a Kalitta Airlines 747-200 for the first of the flights, which are scheduled to take place at a rate of about two per week. The project represents the largest-scale upgrade of Kazakhstan's cattle herds in modern history, according to the Central Asia News Wire.
