KUWAIT CITY, June 3: Unlike last Ramadan, the market witnessed a remarkable stability in the price of sheep, which did not exceed the normal price of the past few months, reports Al-Rai daily.
Although the traders consider the Holy Month as an opportunity to make quick profit the sheep market did not witness a significant increase. The price of slaughter remains affordable, despite the ban on importing sheep from Iran, Iraq and Syria.
The import of sheep is permitted from Saudi Arabia and Australia only. Al-Rai daily tour of the sheep market in the Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, monitored stable prices and met some merchants. Abdullah said that what is currently available in the market is Naimi sheep from Saudi Arabia and has played a significant role in reducing the prices, pointing out that the prices range from 65 to 100 dinars by size and age.
