As much as 20% of Iran’s demand for red meat is provided by nomads who produce about 175,000 tons of red meat every year, an official at the Organization for Nomadic Affair, Mirvali Safarzadeh, said on Monday. “The nomads own nearly 4% of the country’s total livestock and 28% of poultry,” he was quoted by IRNA as saying, adding that the number of tribal people in Iran is currently estimated at around 1.2 million individuals in 220,00 households, with no significant change since the previous year.”
