Caption : PALAKKAD, KERALA, 01/08/2015: The centuries old Kuzhalmandham cattle market in PALAKKAD wore a deserted look for the first time in recent years on August 01, 2015 following the crisis in cattle transportation from outside the state. The weekly Kuzhalmandam market normally happens on Saturdays. The Rs. 16-crore-a-day beef business in Kerala is on the verge of closure with cattle supplies from Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu drying up in the wake of activist groups preventing the transport of animals through several districts in Tamil Nadu. By an estimate of the Animal Husbandry Department in 2011, Kerala requires 5,000 tonnes of live animals and birds a day, with about 70 per cent of its over three-crore population being non-vegetarian. Beef makes up 2,500 tonnes of the total. About 40 per cent of the animal weight is converted into edible meat. By this reckoning, Kerala requires 1,000 tonnes of beef a day. The 40-odd livestock markets across the State, including the 400-year-old Vaniyamkulam cattle market in PALAKKAD, Cattle traders at the Kuzhalmandam market in PALAKKAD and Perumpilavu market in Thrissur agree that there is a crisis. The price of beef is going up as most slaughterhouses are closed. Acute shortage in Kerala market beef price shooting up Rs 240 to Rs 300 a kg. Photo: K. K. Mustafah.
