Livestock officials and experts claimed that there is no shortage of sacrificial animals for the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha which is scheduled to be held in next week as over 1.29 crore animals are ready for the upcoming qurbani festival.

The estimated demand of livestock this year has been set 1.07 crore while almost 22.77 lakh livestock are surplus after fulfil the actual demand of the sacrificial animals this year for the qurbani during the Eid-ul-Azha, according to the statistics released by the divisional livestock department, reports BSS.

“We have no shortage of the livestock to meet the people’s demand for the upcoming Eid as the country has 22 lakh 77 thousands and 973 additional number of livestock after fulfil the country’s qurbani demand,” Director (production) Dr ABM Khaleduzzaman of the Department of Livestock Services (DLS).

Every year sacrificial animal’s demand is usually fixed by adding five per cent extra of animals with the number of animals slaughtered in previous year.

So, the country’s current sacrificial animal demand stands at 1.07 crore for the qurbani in upcoming Eid-ul-Azha, said the DLS director.

Of these sacrificial animals, 52.68 lakh are cattle, 1.60 lakh are buffaloes, 68.50 lakh goats, 7.67 lakh are sheep and 1,850 are other species are ready for qurbani during the Eid-ul-Azha, the second largest festival for the Muslim community across the world.

“The price depends on demand and supply. Since we have made the statistics through surveys, there will not be much difference between demand and supply. It seems that the prices will be ok.”

“Necessary steps will be taken to ensure the safety of the market. There will be close monitoring at all levels until the end of Eid-ul-Azha,” he added.

He also expressed hope that the qurbani market will be a friendly environment for both the buyers and sellers.

In addition to this, the DLS officials said permanent veterinary doctors and mobile veterinary teams will work at the cattle markets across the country including the permanent and temporary city cattle markets under the north and south city corporation area in the capital.

The DLS official also said farmers would not face taxation for selling animals from their homes this year and could not be coerced into selling the animals on the streets if they preferred distant markets.

To enforce this, law-enforcing agencies, local government bodies, and municipal authorities will be vigilant, and any extortion attempts will be addressed.

The minister advised farmers to use digital payments to avoid carrying cash.

Similar to the previous year, selling sacrificial animals online will continue nationwide, benefiting both buyers and sellers.
