With the holy Eid-ul-Azha looming, the capital’s cattle markets are crowded. This time there are 16 permanent and temporary animal markets in the capital. Concerned buyers and sellers say that with only one day left for Eid, the highest number of buyers will return home on Friday to buy sacrificial animals.Different breeds of cows, big and small, have been raised at the Gabtali cattle market in the capital. Buyers are coming, watching, talking, buying cows and coming back. However, most of the buyers demand medium type cows.
Adequate presence of animals for sacrifice has also been noticed in the huts at Vrindavan and ASEAN City in Sector 16 of Uttara. And the presence of buyers is not less.

Buyers are likely to call everyone who looks appropriate, if there are only a few. Two large breeds of cattle named Nawab and Lat Bahadur of Bogra have been brought to Uttara market. The price of the two has been demanded at 18 lakh rupees.

Most of the buyers who come to the cattle market prefer locally reared local cows. On the other hand, many people are now able to buy sacrificial animals online at home. You can buy the desired animal through mobile or online banking as soon as the bargaining is done.
It can be seen in the cattle markets of the capital that the trade of cows and goats has come to a standstill just a day before Eid. The demand for medium sized cows is a bit high. However, the number of big cows in the market is not less. The price is a little high.

Many of the wholesalers who came to the Uttara market said that there are no Indian cows in the cattle market this year. Cattle traders and market tenants said that the trade was going well at the market as the weather was good this afternoon.

Buyers in Uttara and Turag say that last year, small cows were sold for Rs 50,000 to Rs 60,000, medium-sized cows for Rs 65,000 to Rs 1 lakh and large-sized cows for Rs 1.5 lakh to a maximum of Rs 13 lakh. But this year the price of cattle is a little higher. This year 80 to 90 thousand small cows are being sold, 1 lakh to 1 lakh medium cows. And large breed cows from 1 lakh 50 thousand to 13 to 14 lakh rupees.
Uttara Vrindavan Animal Market lessee Alhaj Md. Nur Hossain said, this time the predominance of local cattle is more in the market. Buyer presence is quite.

DMP Turag police OC said. Mehedi Hasan said that adequate security measures have been taken by the DMP police at the cattle market in Uttara.
