Livestock breeding is the main source of livelihood for nomads. Livestock farmers complain about the low prices of livestock on the one hand and the high price of feed and the lack of rain on the other. The price of kilo grams of barley used as feed is 130 Syrian pounds.
Which led to a decline in cattle breeding by 40% as a result of high education costs and low prices in the market and the monopoly of traders for feed, taking advantage of weather conditions and lack of rainfall during the past two years.
