Eid-ul-Adha: 60 trucks of sheep enter valley daily

Mutton dealers anticipate surge in demand

Srinagar, Jun 08: With Eid-ulAdha approaching, the Kashmir Valley is witnessing a substantial arrival of sacrificial animals, with daily truckloads of sheep making their way into the region. This inflow began days ago and is expected to continue until two days before the festival.

Mehraj Ud Din, General Secretary of Mutton Dealers Association Kashmir, speaking to the news agency, said, “This year, we have a variety of high-quality breeds from outside the state, including Rajasthani, Marwadi, Kaju Walla, Jasalmeeri among others. Currently, these out-of-state varieties are known for providing the best quality meat for buyers.”

Sharing details about livestock arrival in the valley, he said that on average, 50 to 60 trucks loaded with sheep are arriving in the valley daily. The supply from outside the state remains strong and will continue up to two days before Eid.

Regarding market conditions, Mehraj said there is a discrepancy between supply and sales. “Sales have not met our expectations so far, but the true level of consumption will become clear after Eid,” he said.

As the festival approaches, both mutton dealers and consumers are closely observing market trends, anticipating a potential rise in demand days before Eid—(KNO)
