The Cattle Market


The administration of the maweshi mandi (cattle market) organized on the Karachi Northern Bypass has reported generating business activity worth Rs8 billion during this year's Eid ul Adha season. The cattle market was relocated from Sohrab Goth to the Northern Bypass in the District West under the Malir Cantonment Board.
The market's spokesperson, Yawar Chawla, stated that almost everyone found the animal they were looking for, and by the eve of Eid ul Adha, the market was almost empty as most of the animals had been sold. Chawla mentioned that the market recorded exceptional business in its new location, with around 700,000 sacrificial animals brought to the market and 600,000 animals sold by Wednesday, which was a record-breaking figure. The market witnessed the sale of animals ranging from over Rs10 million to as low as Rs50,000.
The spokesperson highlighted that the market generated significant business activity, benefiting animal sellers, animal fodder sellers, tea kiosk owners, water suppliers, and various other businesses. He expressed appreciation for the support received from political, religious, and social leaders, as well as television and stage artists who visited the sacrificial animal market.
In addition, the Pakistan Tanners Association (PTA) reported that a total of 6,360,000 animals were sacrificed on Eid ul Adha this year, reflecting a 28% to 30% reduction compared to previous years. The association expressed concerns that approximately 35% of the animal skins collected might spoil due to heat and power outages. Nonetheless, the association estimated the value of animals sacrificed during Eid at Rs376 billion.
