With the approach of Eid al-Adha, the prices of sacrifices in Egypt are rising, and Parliament intervenes

The prices of sacrifices increased in the Republic of Egypt this year with the advent of the blessed Eid al-Adha, which caused an urgent parliamentary move to control the risk of this increase.

According to “Sada Al-Balad” newspaper, Egyptian MP Ahmed Heta submitted an urgent request for briefing to the Prime Minister and the Ministers of Agriculture and Supply.

In a request for briefing, which he delivered on Saturday to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Heta said that “the prices of sacrifices this year have skyrocketed with the approach of Eid al-Adha.”

The deputy identified the reasons for the high prices of sacrifices, including the high prices of fodder, the cost of farms, and market prices, which necessitate state intervention and the provision of fodder in order to reduce prices, he said.

Hatta demanded from the Ministry of Agriculture to offer sacrifices through its outlets to reduce prices to prevent traders from exploiting and increasing meat prices.

He explained that “the prices of fodder do not reach the prices of sacrifices for the insane rise that exists now, but the greed of traders is the reason for this jump in prices, and it must be confronted through monitoring the markets.”

The prices of a kilo of lamb, according to local Egyptian websites, ranged between 80 and 85 pounds, while the price of veal meat ranged between 70 and 75 pounds.

The value of the sheep for sacrifice ranged between 4 to 6 thousand pounds, depending on the weight of the sheep, while the prices of sacrifice calves reached 25 thousand pounds.

We review the following prices of sacrifices according to the local Egyptian market, according to engineer Fadi Ahmed, the owner of a calf farm, as follows:

The existing kilo of lamb «Al-Barqi» 90 pounds.

The existing kilo of Aswani lamb 65 and 70 pounds

A live kilo of lamb “Falahi or Saeed” is about 75 pounds.

Live kilo of Saidi lamb, 80 pounds.

The price of a kilogram of calves stands at about 75 pounds.

Capricorn price ranges between 3000 and 4000 pounds, depending on the weight.

The price of the lamb ranges from 3000 to 5000 pounds.

The price of imported live calves ranged from 18 thousand to 30 thousand pounds.

The price of a municipal calf ranges from 30 thousand to 45 thousand pounds.

And there is less than a month left before the advent of Eid al-Adha, as the sacrifice is one of the rituals of Islam, by which Muslims draw close to God by offering a sacrifice of livestock, from the first days of Eid al-Adha until the last days of Tashreeq
