Résumé partiel
The present investigation was carried out to study the important breed characteristics of Kachchhi camels and traditional managemental practices followed by the camel breeders in Kachchh district of Gujarat State. In all 326 Kachchhi camels of different age groups were covered to study physical characteristics and biometry. Status of performance and traditional managemental practices for the Kachchhi camels was surveyed through personal interviews of 74 traditional breeders in three talukas of Kachchh district. The Kachchhi canels are light to neciun m 5iz ? « itn darkbrown, brown or reddish brown coat colour. These camels have small erect ears with tips turning in. They have small well set muzzles and lips. On an average body length, height at withers and heart girth measured 61.17 ± 1.32, 110.42 ±. 1.35 and 76.92 + 2.81 cm in male ; and 61.46 ± 1.01, 109.15 + 1.13 and 72.77 ±. 1.56 cm in female, respectively at birth. The corresponding body measurements in adult were 159.82 ± 2.10, 195.00 ±. 3.55 and 195.93 ±2.11 cm in male ; and 156.15 ± 0.76, 192.16 + 0.77 and 204.75 ± 10.77 cm in female, respectively. The height at wither in adult camel was found to be a reliable measure for growth from its associa- tion with important body measurements.Majority of the traditional camel breeders were following age at first mating of 3 to 4 years in female and 4 to 5 years in male camel. About 47 per cent of the breeders used one stud camel for 50 to 70 females. Winter was the common breeding season resulting into calving in late winter in the camels
