    Prices of sacrificial animals have gone up in Hyderabad ahead of Bakrid. Traders say the rise is due to high demand, low supply, and heavy rains in the city and surrounding areas. During Bakrid, which will be celebrated on Monday, sheep, goats, and cattle are in demand. However, traders are concerned about the impact of ongoing rains on their livestock.

    Animal traders have set up stalls in various areas like Falaknuma, Barkas, and Mehdipatnam to sell their stock before the festival. Prices for sheep range from Rs 10,000 to Rs 30,000 each, depending on factors like size and breed. Traders worry that the rainy season may cause health issues for the animals.

    To protect the animals from the rain, traders have installed halogen bulbs at their stalls. Mohammed Imtiaz, a trader at Chanchalguda, mentioned that prices may change based on market conditions as Eid approaches. Muslims buying animals for sacrifice are facing increased costs due to various factors like transportation expenses and regulatory requirements.

    Strict rules and regulations are in place for bringing livestock into the city. Traders source animals from different locations like Shadnagar, Nalgonda, and even neighboring states. The price of livestock has increased compared to previous years, with some breeds commanding high prices like the Nellore breed sold by Abubakar Bin Mohammed.
