2024 Infographic: Livestock Market in Bangladesh

The holy Eid-ul-Adha brings a lot of happiness and enthusiasm. And Eid-ul-Adha means sacrifice, oblation, and surrender. Nowadays, going to the Qurbani Haat and buying it is a lot of trouble, especially amidst the scorching heat this year. This calls for the process of buying and selling sacrificial animals from home without hassle. Therefore, like in the past few years, sacrificial animals are also being traded from the classifieds platform this year keeping the customers in mind. Like every year, Bikroy has brought its flagship campaign ‘Birat Haat’, the pioneer of digital haat in Bangladesh, from the place of your trust and loyalty. From where you can comfortably buy and sell the desired animal per your requirements. Without further ado, let’s find out the trend of the sacrificial Qurbani Haat in Bangladesh this year based on the Bikroy data in 2024.

Livestock Listings by Location

Listings by Location

Cattle sale ads are posted in different cities in Bangladesh. Most advertisements are posted from Dhaka, Rajshahi, Sylhet, Khulna, and Chittagong compared to other districts. Like last year, 36% of cows and goats from Dhaka have been advertised in the livestock listing section. As most of the animals are bought in Dhaka and the farm owners get the expected price, sellers are more interested in selling animals in Dhaka. That is why the advertisement rate is also higher in Dhaka than in other districts. 

Khulna occupies the second place with 16% advertisement and Chittagong occupies the third place with 13% advertisement, same as last time. Besides, Sylhet has 12%, and Rajshahi has 11% advertisements. On the other hand, Barisal, Rangpur, and Mymensingh posted 4%, 4%, and 3% advertisements respectively. Like every year, this year too the ad posts are consistent which is a nice aspect.

59% of the cattle ads posted on Bikroy in 2024 are priced between BDT 50,000 and BDT 2.5 lac. 29% of the animals are priced below BDT 50,000 which is within the purchasing power of the general public, and because of the high demand for relatively small animals, this price range offers more advertisements. 10% of premium quality qurbani animal ads are priced between BDT 2.5 lac and BDT 10 lac, and only 1% of qurbani animal ads are listed above BDT 10 lac.
