Productive and Reproductive Performances of Camel (Camelus dromedarius) in Bangladesh

The present study was undertaken to evaluate the productive and reproductive performances of camel in Bangladesh. For this purpose, data were collected randomly from 28 female camels of total 43 camels, Bebe Modina camel farm of Dhaka. It was found that the average milk yield, lactation period, total milk yield, service per conception, post-partum estrus period and calving interval were highly significant (p<0.01) between two age group of camel. It was also found that the average fat% and SNF% between two age group were 3.35 ± 0.07 and 4.37 ± 0.70, 8.34 ± 0.24 and 9.17 ± 0.49, respectively and the differences were found highly significant (p<0.01). The lactose% and protein% were differ nonsignificantly between two age group and significant difference (p<0.05) present in ash percentage. Length of estrus cycle differ significantly (p<0.05) and there was no significant difference in gestation period between two age group. Between two age group mastitis 11.11%, dystocia 5.56% and abortion 16.67% were found in young ages, but abortion was 5.56% in older group. The present study reveals that young group was found to be better performer followed by old group of camel in Bangladesh.
