Title:High prices of Rawhides in Gaibandha

Gaibandha, Bangladesh. October 08, 2014 [DrikNEWS] - The rawhides of sacrificed slaughtered animals are being sold at a price double than the last year at all upazilas of Gaibandha. This year the amount of slaughtered animals were also high compared to the prices. A total of at least fifty thousands cows, goats and sheep were slaughtered this time in Gaibandha. Rawhides businessmen of Gaibandha informed the same amount of rawhides sold for $18.75 last year is being sold for $31.25 this year. The businessmen expected a rate to buy rawhides at a price lower than the government had declared earlier, so that they could enjoy profit. Inexperienced and new businessmen are thus facing loss. Rawhides businessmen are also facing trouble, as they are not finding any labor even at a higher price for the distribution of rawhides. The task of processing skin with salt is a tough one and only physically strong labors are capable of doing the task.
