Ban on Livestock Exports

Due to the increase in red meat prices in the domestic market, the export of livestock has been banned from August 31 to October 1, the head of the National Assembly of Livestock Exporters said. Every year, on the occasion of the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha (known as Eid-e Qorban in Iran), demand for meat and consequently its prices rise as Muslims celebrate the annual feast. This year Eid al-Adha falls on September 11. “Since the beginning of the current Iranian year (March 20), close to 580,000 head of sheep were exported to Oman from where they are reexported to Qatar, Kuwait and other littoral states of the Persian Gulf,” Mansour Pourian was also quoted by ISNA as saying.
