Demand for sheep, goats up in Hyderabad ahead of Bakrid

The demand for livestock has skyrocketed in the city as Eid-ul-Adha, also known as Bakrid, approaches. The bright side is that animal prices have not increased significantly this time. The celebration takes place on the tenth day of Dhul Hijjah, the last month in the Hijri calendar and the Islamic calendar.
In the city, goats and sheep are frequently sacrificed. Three days before to Eid al Adha, cattle traders from Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, and karnataka bring their livestock to the makeshift marketplaces in the city, according to Shamsheer Khan, a cow seller at Jiyaguda market.

The most well-liked market, Jiyaguda, is where over 300 vendors congregate to transact business during Bakrid. Although the market is open year-round, just 100 dealers often get together.
A sheep providing around 12 kg of meat is being sold for Rs 12,000 this year. "For Qurbani (sacrifice), they buy lambs weighing between 11 and 14 kg. Some households prefer larger sheep, which weigh between 25 and 30 kg and cost about Rs. 30,000, according to Jiyaguda commission agent Mohd Imtiyaz.

throughout the lead-up to the event, several makeshift marketplaces are put up throughout the city at Chanchalguda, Nanal Nagar, Mehdipatnam, Musheerabad, Golnaka, Falaknuma, Khilwat, Chandrayangutta, Banjara Hills, Zehra Nagar, Borabanda, Jalpally, Shaheennagar, Kishanbagh, Azampura, AC Guards, and other locations.
Muslims usually sacrifice sheep or animals, dividing the flesh into three equal portions. A portion is given to friends, acquaintances, and family, a portion is given to the underprivileged and impoverished, and the remaining portion is kept for the individual.

As times have changed, more individuals are choosing to use "Qurbani service" providers, who need a payment of a particular amount in exchange for the animal. The group handles the animal sacrifice, cleaning, cutting, and packaging, and then distributes the packets to the family.
