 DOHA, Qatar, June 10 (Bernama)  -- Preparations for the month of Ramadan have started here with a consignment of 5,000 sheep from Australia, Qatar News Agency (QNA) reported, quoting a senior official as saying here.
 Hassad Food Company (HFC) Chairman, Nasser Al Hajri said that a shipment of 5,000 sheep left Australia this week and will reach Qatar before Ramadan.
 "After the arrival of this lot, another 5,000 sheep will be moved out from our subsidiary farm in Australia. A total of around 13,000 sheep will come from Australia," he said.
 The sheep are a cross between the Awassi breed, local sheep breed in South-West Asia originated in the Syro-Arabian desert, and the native Australia breed, he said.
