How technology is used as a way to sell sacrificial animals in Pakistan

How technology is used as a way to sell sacrificial animals in Pakistan

[vc_row][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text css_animation=”bottom-to-top”]By @Maryam Dodhy for Techjuice
Usage of technology as an enabler is the way to go forward. If we look around ourselves, we will find a great number of examples where usage of technology has made our lives so much more easier.

Long gone are the days when people had to spend days upon days searching the Bakra Mandi for the perfect animal. Sacrificial animals are being sold online making this task hassle free. However, the concept isn’t entirely new. This practice has been around for a few years now. People have been putting sacrificial animal for sale ads on social media and OLX but on a limited scale. QurbaniOnline is a site specifically geared for this task.

The online sale of animals is expected to rise this year. People at qurbanionline.com say that they sold 67,000 animals in 2013 and 75,000 animals in 2014 and that number is expected to rise up to 100,000 this year. These online sites make purchase easy for those of us scared to hunt markets. Here you are expected to find a goat for about Rs. 23,000 and a cow for a little over 72,000.

Now this article is not focused on the online forums that will help you find the right bakra but rather on why the need has arise for such forums to exist and how Pakistan is gradually moving towards a digital future. If you compare your life now to what it was a decade ago, you’ll probably think our lives have become fast-paced and very technology-oriented. Everything has gone electronic and its catalyst is a sudden boom of technology. Back up a few years, how many laptops (and other smart gadgets) did you have in your house then? How many do you have now? There lies your answer. Everything is a click away. Want to buy some clothes? Visit an online store. Book your appointmentsonline. Plan your wedding online. Order food, maintenance services – and now sacrificial animals for Eid-ul-Azha.

Long story short, we have an online alternative of everything now. Don’t feel like getting out of the house? Order online. And there’s nothing bad about this trend either. If there’s anything it’s doing, it’s making lives easier. So, don’t ask why do we need an online alternative of everything, the question you should be asking is why didn’t we think of this before? The answer is because we weren’t as technology-friendly as we are now. These days, a Pakistani household that has at least one member pursuing higher education will have an abundance of smart gadgets. Naturally, these people will use such websites to make their life easier. This trend will only grow and is a reminder of the fact of how fast Pakistan is moving towards a digital future.[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”946″ img_size=”full” css_animation=”bottom-to-top”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/6″][vc_single_image image=”993″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” css_animation=”right-to-left” title=”Aqiqa” link=”/aqiqa-online”][vc_single_image image=”961″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” onclick=”custom_link” css_animation=”right-to-left” title=”Qurbani Online” link=”/qurbani-online”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text css_animation=”bottom-to-top”]

Online sales of sacrificial animals

Online sales of sacrificial animals

MONEY is flowing fast into the sacrificial animals business, while the growing use of online marketing continues to reshape the market dynamics.

But investors who had spent billions of rupees in advanced booking of animals are not sure if their net return would rise as dramatically as it did in previous years.

The recent ban on the slaughtering of cows and she-goats in Punjab (to ensure faster livestock growth) is being ignored by animal traders on the grounds that it is meant for regular slaughtering, and not during Eid-ul-Azha.

And the Rangers’ ongoing operation in Karachi against criminals and bad elements in political parties has affected the sacrificial animal market in two ways. On one hand, the animal traders are doing business with lesser fear of bhatta (extortion money). But on the other, the local administration’s new-found zeal for implementing the rule of law is making it difficult for the traders to set up temporary markets for sacrificial animals wherever they wish.

A trader at a leading online portal hopes to sell 100,000 sacrificial animals this year, up from 75,000 last year and 67,000 a year before that

[/vc_message][vc_column_text]Traders are frequenting between Karachi and the rural areas of Sindh or Punjab with greater ease and are bringing in truckloads of sacrificial animals to the city’s main market on Super Highway.

The cut in petroleum prices effective from September 1 has also come as a blessing for them, as they believe that it will help them contain the cost of transporting animals from rural areas to city and town markets.

Meanwhile, the online sale of animals is also expected to rise. People at Qurbanionline.com say they hope to sell 100,000 animals this year, up from 75,000 last year and 67,000 a year before that. People can buy a goat via this online facility for $225 or about Rs23,000 and a cow for $710 (a little over Rs72,000).

Qurbani Online Dawn News

The Al-Shaheer Corporation, which owns the Meat One brand, has also offered the facility of qurbani to its customers for Rs22,000 per goat and Rs99,000 per cow. The deal includes the delivery of meat.

Online services for buying sacrificial animals and for participating in collective sacrifices are offered by several other web portals as well. And young investors are also using OLX.com and similar websites to sell animals on a limited scale.

At Karachi’s main market on Super Highway and in some other markets across the city, the prices of goats and sheep of average height and weight ranged between Rs20,000-30,000 and between Rs15,000-Rs25,000 respectively (till last Tuesday). Meanwhile, cows and calves of average height and weight were priced at Rs60,000-Rs100,000.

The welfare arms of political parties and charities have set their rates for goats at Rs15,000-Rs20,000 and for cows and calves at Rs49,000-Rs72,000 depending upon the size and weight of the animals and the places where the collective sacrifice would take place.

“Animal prices for end-buyers may rise further as Eid-ul-Azha gets closer. But investors would earn no big profits this year,” says a Karachi-based livestock broker who booked 300 cows and bulls in Bahawalpur and 300 goats in Tando Adam in the last week of June.

“I made bookings at an average rate of 60,000 per cow or calf and Rs12,000 per goat and the prices also covered the upkeep and grazing charges for three months,” he told this writer. He said half of the total price of all animals was paid at the time of booking and the remaining 50pc is being paid per truckload of animals on their arrival in Karachi.

This investor is expecting a maximum 30pc return on his investment (Rs22.5m paid as 50pc of the total price of animals in June), which works out at 10pc per month. Since the remaining 50pc price would be paid out of the money he is receiving from local traders, the 10pc net monthly return would not be diluted. “But then it’s not too big, as I have earned higher returns in previous years.”

He represents a class of investment-hoppers, charities, once-a-year-formed groups of crowd financers, NGOs, online traders, and the welfare arms of political parties and religious seminaries. They book sacrificial animals several months before Eid-ul-Azha and earn better returns on their investment owing to lower animal prices due to their bulk forward buying.

No credible estimate is available about such investment, but it certainly runs into tens of billions of rupees.

People had spent Rs350-400bn on purchasing sacrificial animals last year, according to a conservative estimate based on the post-Eid collection of hides and skins (7.4m reported by tanneries but close to 10m by other guesstimates). This year, such spending is expected to remain either unchanged or rise modestly, say sources associated with the cattle trade.

Meanwhile, individual animal-selling arguably fetches higher returns because it is at this stage that the animals are categorised not only by their weight and size but also by their breed or looks, with their prices set accordingly.

Eid-ul-Azha preparations on an upsurge – Business Recorder

Eid-ul-Azha preparations on an upsurge – Business Recorder

[vc_row full_width=”” parallax=”” parallax_image=””][vc_column width=”5/6″][vc_column_text css_animation=””]~BR RESEARCH [Sobia Saleem]

With every passing day, the zeal and zest of Eid-ul-Azha is gaining impetus. On one hand, women are actively buying recipe books, spices and other ingredients for preparing the tantalizing dishes, the teenagers are excitingly chatting about the attributes of the animals and purchasing knick-knacks for beautifying their animals, while the bread earners are looking for better and affordable deals to buy animals and perform this religious ritual on the face of smutty law and order situation and spiraling prices.

Clued-up with informed sources, over 300,000 cows and 200,000 goats are expected to make their ways to Karachi this year for Eid-ul-Azha; yet only small numbers have turned up so far. However, advertisements of different cattle farms and Mandis already dot the streets of Karachi.

Animal vendors have also started appearing in the city especially in the busy areas like Saddar and Nazimabad. Moreover, mosques have also started offering portions in collective sacrifices, with prices ranging from Rs6000 to Rs12000 per share.

Over the years, the trend of online buying and selling of sacrificial animals has also emerged incredibly with escalating number of orders being placed each year. The online cattle markets provide photos, videos, and other descriptions including the type and price of animals, thus facilitating people in making well-informed decisions. This alternative also particularly entices Pakistanis residing overseas whereby they can perform the sacrificial custom smoothly and get the meat delivered to their loved ones or to a welfare organisation of their choice.

Hasnain Raza of Qurbanionline told BRR that the e-qurbani platforms develop a centralized reservoir that properly channelise assets generated from the sacrifice (meat, hides and by products), thus making a sanguine difference in the economy.

He highlighted that with the growing security concerns in the country, rising food inflation, high animal haulage, oversee and slaughter charges, people are tremendously inclined towards the alternative of online qurbani whereby they can select the animals, book their orders and make payments online and the orders will be executed and delivered to the given address within the three days of Eid-ul-Azha without any hassle.

Besides, since the online farms are engaged in volume-based business, the marginal cost per animal plunges and they are able to offer competitive prices.

Last year, the major reason that was quoted by vendors for exorbitant animal prices was the devastation caused by the floods. This year, however, prices have managed to soar without a natural calamity. This time around, animal vendors say the bills ratcheted up are thanks to high costs of transportation and staging at the animal markets set up in and around the city.
