As foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) continues to spread, the price of sacrificial livestock has witnessed a notable hike amid rising demand and limited supply nearing the celebration of Idul Adha. The Indonesian Meat Butcher and Trader Network (JAPPDI) expects livestock demand for the Islamic Day of Sacrifice in Jakarta and the Bandung area to amount to 150,380 heads, a 5 percent increase from the previous year. Simultaneously, movement restrictions to contain the spread of the disease have cut sacrificial livestock supply in both areas, JAPPDI chairman Asnawi told The Jakarta Post on Wednesday.
