Title: Effects of Dietary Concentrate and Browsing on the Composition of Camel Milk in Khartoum State
Author: Ahmed, DeyaEldein Suleiman Mahmoud Abdallah
Abstract: The present study aimed to examine the effects of feeding system on the composition of camel milk in Khartoum state. Sixty samples of camel milk were collected from 10 she - camels in second lactation (age 6 years) and same breed (Camelusdromedarius). Thirty samples of milk were obtained from the University of Khartoum farm that reared on semi- intensive system as well as samples of the ration (concentrate) that was fed to the animals. Thirty samples of camel milk were obtained from Om daoumban area that reared on extensive system. Samples of Acacianilotica (sunt) that are preferable by camels in the dry season were collected. The chemical composition analysis was carried out on samples of milk. Proximate analysis was determined for samples of ration (concentrate) and samples of Acacia nilotica. Statistical analysis was performed for the data using SPSS version 19.The results of milk analysis showed that the contents of crude protein ,lactose, and total solids of camel milk from the University of Khartoum were significantly (p<0.05) higher than camel milk from Om daoumban. Minerals (Ca, Na, Cl) in camel milk from the University of Khartoum were significantly (p<0.05) higher than in camel milk from Om Daoumban. The results of analysis of ration(concentrate) showed higher values of crude protein (CP), crude fiber(CF),ether extract(EE) and ash in concentrate than in acacia.The contents of Ca and P in concentrate were significantly (p<0.05) higher in concentrate than in acacia. It was concluded that the feeding system has great effect on milk composition and some macro minerals concentration especially Ca and P. The study recommended supplementation of concentrate for camels kept on extensive system.
