The holy Eid-ul-Adha is only one day left. Most of the animal markets in the capital started to become empty on the last day.

On Sunday (June 16), this image can be seen by visiting various animal markets in the capital.

This year, Dhaka's Eid-ul-Adha sacrificial animal markets are witnessing a sharp rise in demand for small and medium-sized cattle, while sellers of large cattle are struggling with sluggish sales.

However, the sale and purchase of sacrificial animals in the markets of the capital has not been that much, but a completely different picture was seen on Friday and Saturday. Many have bought their favorite animals and returned home. Sellers are also happy as sales are high.

In the last two days, the presence of cows has been seen in the surrounding roads and lanes except the field designated for Tejgaon market. But today the animal market started to be empty. By 2 pm, market is almost empty. From the road to the field, no animals were seen except for a few cows.

Ali Hossain brought 16 cows from Roumari. All his cows were sold by morning. When asked, he said, I brought a total of 16 cows. All are medium and small size cows. The last one was sold this morning. Medium and small size cows are in high demand in the market.

But there are also unsold cows of this size. Joynal Mia brought a total of 9 medium size cows from Bhaluka. He said, I brought 9 cows. There are currently 4. The price doesn't match, so I didn't sell them because they are more expensive. I will see till afternoon.

Apart from the designated place of the capital's Meradia market, there are enough animals to be seen in the surrounding alleys, but now most of them are empty. A buyer named Mizanur Rahman who came to buy cows in this market said that many sacrificial animals had available to this market. Small, large, medium sized cows and goats had arrived. I didn't think it would be empty on the last day.

A businessman from Narayanganj said that he brought a total of 6 big size cows, 4 of them were sold. Two of the largest remain.

Despite these complaints, some buyers managed to find cattle within their budgets.
