Lagos cattle market

At the cattle market in Lagos, Nigeria, we see market trading (supply and demand) in relation to a commodity. The Lagos cattle market shows a market price being established by negotiation and shows how entrepreneurs build a business on unlikely parts of the cow. In a grizzly sequence, the cow is dismembered. One entrepreneur has built a business on the cow’s blood. What he once used to wash away, he now boils and turns into fertiliser.
