Author: ElYas, Ibtisam
Abstract: The present study vvas done to investigate the general information about camel’s herders, camel health, general management and husbandry, general aspects of the herders’ farms and their vievv of the camel production. Three herds (2937 camels) at Khartoum State (Omdurman and Eastem Nile, Eid babiker and Alkadero) vvere selected for the present survey. The investigation revealed that the ratio of females’ camels is particularly higher than that of males in the three herds. Female’ and males camels vvere 83.9 and 16.1%, 24.6 and 25.4% and 26.1 and 23.9% in Omdurman, Eid babiker and Alkadero, respectively. The milk produced vvas found to be for family subsistence and offered free for the others, for medicinal purposes. The camels might come in contact during breeding, brovvsing and at vvater points. The other species of animal don’t come in contact vvith camel at Omdurman and do at varying levels at other regions. In Omdurman herders are sharing lands (communal land), While in Eastem Nile (Eid babiker and Alkadero) they ovvn lands. Also differences of food and Water sources and uses in the three regions vvere found. The camel herders support their camels vvith minerals (common salt), moreover camel herders at Omdurman give their herds licking stone. The incidences of some common diseases vvere carried out, the abortion’s incidences, although high among the three herds, it shovved non-significant differences. The screening for the treatment of intemal parasites showed highly significant (p<i0.001) different between the three herds.
