    Baghdad today - Baghdad
    Despite the advent of Eid al-Adha, meat merchants are recording a slight increase in purchasing demand at levels that are not commensurate with the size of the occasion and the nature of purchasing compared to previous years. Some of them attributed this to the fact that the Eid came in the middle of the month, as it is known that most of the financial obligations of Iraqi employees have been paid. It was paid during the first third of the month, making the remainder of the salary restricted for further purchasing operations.
    Omar Al-Azzawi, a red meat trader, said in an interview with “Baghdad Today”: “Meat is a main item for the Iraqi family’s table, not only on holidays, but also on normal days, even if it is once a week for the average family, while the matter is different, of course, for the well-to-do.”
    He added, "Extreme poverty exists and there are already families whose homes do not have meat for months, but on the other hand, even average families have decreased their desire to buy fresh meat and have gone to white meat and other alternatives, including imported ones, because of the prices that we have no control over."
    He pointed out that "the level of turnout today, for example, has increased by a very slight margin compared to other days, but the situation years ago was different because the economic situation has become more difficult and there are priorities for many families."
    As for Jaafar Ali, a white meat (poultry) trader, he explained that “the arrival of Eid in the middle of the month directly affected the level of demand for buying both white and red meat because, according to the principle of the world of employees, it is the beginning of the drought in financial resources, represented by the salary.”
    He explained that “the demand would be double if the salary distribution came with the Eid,” pointing out that “the pressure of living pushed families to change their tables by relying on alternatives, including imported meat, including white meat, and this is what prompted us to change sales patterns by relying 80% on Imported for 20% on fresh Iraqi food.
    Umm Ghassan, a housewife, pointed out in an interview with “Baghdad Today” that “the burden of living did not affect family ties in their interaction with holidays, or even food,” wondering, “How many families are now in a popular alley preparing kleija, which is what is supposed to be the holiday dish.” "Undisputedly, but the situation has changed."
    She continued: “Buying a kilo of meat with okra to prepare a stew for an average family means spending approximately 25-27 thousand dinars, which is a high amount for simple people. This explains why some of them postpone the celebration by buying one kilogram, waiting for the prices to drop somewhat, but this matter does not matter to the well-off, for whom meat is a constant visitor.” On their tables."
    The prices of Iraqi lamb have been high for more than 3 months, specifically with the arrival of spring, as the prices of a kilogram of lamb range between 18 and 20 thousand dinars, after it was 14 thousand dinars in the worst cases, while the state controlled the prices of beef and calves only by importing them live. From outside.
