4 online cattle markets to check out this Eid-ul-Azha

This year’s Eid-ul-Azha, or colloquially Qurbani Eid, festival is just around the corner and like every year, Muslims in Bangladesh are eager to purchase sacrificial animals.

However, visiting the animal haat, or cattle markets, physically to buy sacrificial animals during this sweltering summer heat can be a daunting task for many. Keeping all this in mind, different online platforms are once again starting online cattle markets.

For the last few years, the trend of Online Qurbani Haat in Bangladesh has revolutionised the way people participate in the tradition of animal sacrifice.

The digital platform provides convenience, accessibility, and a wide range of options for individuals looking to purchase sacrificial animals. However, it is upon the buyers, to check all the detailed information such as breed, weight, age, height, feed, gender and colour before purchasing an animal.

Thus, buyers can choose the best sacrificial animals from the online cattle markets for the holy occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.

Fortunately, quite a few online Qurbani haat are available in Bangladesh. Let’s explore five of these “digital haat” in detail.

Bikroy Birat Haat

To celebrate the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha, Bikroy.com, a renowned platform for buying and selling livestock, has joined hands with Minister Hi-Tech Park Ltd, a well-known manufacturer of electronics and home appliances, and OPPO Bangladesh, a global mobile manufacturing company.

Together, they have organised a Qurbani campaign called “Bikroy Birat Haat Powered by Minister.”

Just like every Eid-ul-Azha, Bikroy is once again offering a special collection of farm animals exclusively for its valued customers. The Bikroy website already showcases over 1,600 advertisements for livestock.

To boost the popularity of Bikroy online haat, like every year, the company also launched the Birat Haat Contest. However, this year the contest will be different. Minister has taken on the role of Title Sponsor for the seventh consecutive time, while OPPO has joined as an Associate Partner for the first time.

To participate in the Birat Haat contest, individuals are required to create a video following the theme song of Birat Haat along with its catchy dance step. The video should be shared on either one or all of the respective Facebook, TikTok and YouTube profiles with #BiratHaat2023 in the caption.

Additionally, participants are also required to submit the video link to the Bikroy Blog site. Among the submitted videos, 18 lucky winners will be chosen based on their entertainment value and uniqueness.

For the Member contest, 15 winners will be selected from sellers across all categories with the highest number of ads, most views, and ad responses. All winners will be rewarded with exciting prizes such as refrigerators, LED TVs, smartphones and more, with a total value of Tk 6 lakh, sponsored by Minister Hi-Tech Park Ltd and OPPO Bangladesh.

Bengal Meat Qurbani

On June 1, Bengal Meat announced the launch of the Qurbani portal for the ninth consecutive year. They sell organic grass-fed cattle, offering a unique and distinct option for customers.

Customers have the convenience of ordering their preferred cattle through the online platform, and the cattle are then delivered while maintaining the necessary quality.

Sadeeq Agro

Popular livestock farm Sadeeq Agro also arranged online cattle haat this year. The buyers can check their website to order any cattle they like. The site provides weight and all other required information regarding the cattle. However, buyers can also visit their farm to see the cow and verify its weight.

Qurbani cows can be ordered up to seven days before Eid-ul-Azha. However, the buyer will be required to pay 10 per cent money in advance. The costs of cows vary as per the weight. After the order, Sadeeq Agro will deliver according to the customer’s preferred date.

The best thing about Sadeeq Agro is that they do not have any delivery charges and they deliver anywhere in the Dhaka metropolitan area.

Khaas Food

This year, Khaas Food has launched an Online Qurbani Haat, aiming to provide a convenient platform for purchasing sacrificial animals.

It features a diverse selection of cows sourced from numerous farms and breeds. Each cow comes with detailed information, including weight, age, height, feed, gender and colour.

Additionally, Khaas Food ensures transparency and clarity regarding the health of the cattle by specifying the vaccines they have received.

To secure a booking, customers are required to make an upfront payment of 50 per cent via bKash or credit card, with the remaining amount due before delivery.

Delivery of sacrificial animals will be completed in two-four days before Eid. Tk 3,000 is applicable for delivery charges. In this case, the delivery will be done according to the order of booking and the customer’s demand.
