15 April, 2013 SOMALIA

 

With the gu’ rains falling across most parts of Somalia, the pasture is at its richest. The country’s livestock markets have received animals in great shape for sale. 

Export quality sheep and goats arrived in large numbers at the main port market this week. Jaabiri and Deero Group livestock companies, the two big players, competed for their purchase for export.  But only camels for local consumption were found at Burao this week. Pastoralists are keeping back their best camels for fattening up before bringing them to market later on hoping to get top export prices. Shekeye Ali Hassan, a dealer, said pastoralist families have enough milk and oil presently to avoid the need to sell their animals. Prices are therefore high.
