  • Citizens to Al-Anbaa: The reason for the high prices is the absence of supervision, and we demand support for feed and sheep breeders

The world did not wake up earlier from the weight of the repercussions of the Corona pandemic until it entered a dark tunnel caused by the current war between Russia and Ukraine. If the pandemic affected the flow of goods and merchandise, which led to a rise in prices, the war came the strongest blow, especially in terms of agricultural production and consumer products, whose prices have risen sharply in recent times. With the approach of the blessed Eid al-Adha for this year, the sacrificial market was not immune to this wave of high prices and steady rises in prices, as «alanba» during a tour in the sheep markets a significant rise in prices monitored of sacrifices amounting to about 30%, which aroused the dissatisfaction of customers who demanded more control to eliminate high prices.
In the following lines, details of the opinions of a number of sellers and market leaders:
The investigation was conducted by: Muhammad Al-Dashish
At the beginning of our tour we met the citizen Youssef Al-Dosari, who said: I came to the market today to buy an amulet whose specifications are less than those of the victim, and I noticed that the price is more than 20%. , and a while ago I was in the market and the prices were lower but it’s their season and we can do nothing.
Al-Dosari added: We are now getting closer to Eid al-Adha, and prices are currently on fire. On the reason for the rise in prices more than the neighboring countries, he said that the first reason is state-oriented due to the lack of market control, the lack of support for feed and the lack of support for the citizen who raises sheep, and the second reason not to open the door for imports to everyone, as imports need to be expanded.
We also met with Umm Rashid, who said: Sure, prices are high, and what we are buying today at 120 dinars, tomorrow you will find it more expensive, and the reason is the lack of control over the markets from all sides.
She added: We do not have places to buy and store the victim until they increase the prices, and we became the victim before the date of the victim, and I expect the value of the victim to exceed 180 dinars will reach, and this places a burden on some middle-income families and it is difficult for everyone to be able to buy at these prices.
Umm Rashid continued: This season is being exploited by many by raising prices, and even the prices of restaurants for cooking banquets have been increased, and you have to book with them a few days before Eid so you can cook for them.
As for the citizen, Falah Al-Enezi, he said that prices are high, and the Kuwaiti market is most in demand for Al-Nuaimi, which is divided into 3 divisions: the local Al-Naimi, the Saudi, the Jordanian Al-Naimi and the Syrian Al-Naimi, and their prices range between 100 and 180 dinars.
He continued: My father told me, believe me, that the value of buying 3 sheep in Kuwait is equal to buying 5 sheep in Saudi Arabia of the same age and specifications, and the reason is due to the monopoly of the market by expatriates, adds: In the past, the people of Kuwait were those who worked in the market and gave you the normal price without taking advantage of opportunities and not cheating you.
sacrificial lamb specifications
During our tour of the markets, we met the seller Badr Al-Fadhli in Safat sheep in the Al-Dhahr region, who said: My father describes the victim, the victim is different, and every community in Kuwait wants a have specific type and specifications.
He added: Let me explain to you about some of the specifications and prices of the offering, for example the price of the local Nuaimi which is more than 6 months old and fat. .
Al-Fadhli continued: There are nationalities that buy the cheapest offerings at prices, including the Iranian Shafali and the Russian Chechen sheep, and their prices start from 75 to 90 dinars at the time of the sacrifice.
Reasons for monopoly
During the tour, we asked the trader Mubarak Al-Rashidi, one of the sheep traders, about the reason for the monopoly of some sheep by the sheep traders until the time of Eid. His response came: Yes, we monopolize them, increase their price, and work on them for 6 months before the arrival of the sacrificial season, and that’s everywhere and every time. And in all Islamic countries in the sacrificial season.
He continued: If I get tired, grow up and feed through the year, I do not want to win 30 dinars on the head to compensate me for my fatigue throughout the year, and believe me, the suffering of sheep breeding is known only to those . who tried it, especially in exceptional conditions in the Gulf countries, where the temperature reaches more than 50 degrees in summer.
Al-Rashidi added: We also suffer from a lack of rain in the spring, as the sheep breeder supplies feed throughout the year, and everyone has known for a long time about the very high feed prices, if the price of a bag of barley is more than 5 and a half dinars reached, which was also emphasized by the seller, Mabrouk Awad.
We also met with the seller Abu Saeed, who said that the offering is available from 90 dinars to 180 dinars, and the zain lays himself out and points out that all offerings have the characteristics of the Islamic victim in full.
He added: This year is the lowest year in which there are sacrifices in Kuwait, as the quantities are very small and it helps to increase prices, and the most demanded thing in the market are the three species of Al-Nuaimi sheep, which very rare in the market.Before the season of the victim it costs 70 dinars, and you go out, and in the season of the victim it reaches 100 dinars.

The price of sitting is 550 dinars .. and sitting is sufficient for 7 sheep

During the «alanba» tour of the sacrificial markets, we met the Kuwaiti citizen Ali Al-Hajri, one of the camel traders, who said that in the season of the victim, since there is a demand for livestock, there is a question to the banks, and the prices of the banks start as you see before you, which is a local production from 500 dinars to 500 dinars 550 dinars, which is legally enough for 7 sheep.
He added: We have two other bases whose prices start at 200 dinars, and they take it for alms or occasions, and our prices on Eid do not rise, and even if they rise, it is a very small percentage.
Al-Hajri continued: Camels in Kuwait come from 4 countries, which are local, Omani, Pakistani and Somali, and I have been working in this activity for a long time and I tell you that good sitting enforces itself and everything has a price. of Awada.
