Cattle Market
low cost advertising
One of the largest cattle markets in Mali occurs every Saturday at a market about one hour away from Bamako.

Knowing how regular markets that sell food and wares can be a little chaotic and congested, I was expecting a cattle market to be even more so.

Instead I was surprised at how low key the sellers were. There were no shouts to advertise their stock and the only frenzied part of the market is when the occasional errant cow wandered off from its handler.

While walking around the grounds, I had to be constantly aware of the cattle around me and had to be ready to jump out of the way in case I heard hoofs clambering.

There were no women buying or selling cattle and nearly all the men were dressed in traditional clothing.

In case you were wondering, a young cow, around 3 years old, had an initial asking price of around 150 USD.
An older cow that had horns around 8-10 inches (20-25 cm) cost about twice.

Since I know nothing about cows, I have no idea what horn size says other than a cow could be older than another one without horns.
