The Swiss Government has stockpiles of up to 400,000t of animal feed for their national dairy herd in reserve.

According to a report from the Financial Times, the country is particularly sensitive to the risk of shortages due to its geographic location.

Switzerland has some 1.59m cows and after WWII developed an extensive agriculture policy to help avoid any future food shortages.

Brown Swiss cattle, wearing bells, are synonymous with the country’s image.

While the country is famed for their bell-wearing cows and chocolate, they keep a number of other essential items in reserve, including 63,000t of sugar and 160,000t of white flour for bread.
