Résumé
Camel milk is the white gold of the desert. It is the main source of nutrition for nomadic people. It has high nutritional, immunological and medicinal value as it contains high levels of protein, fat, minerals as well as immunoglobulins. Different feeding behavior and physiological status of camel affect the components of milk. Aim : To compare the effect of farming and grazing systems in different physiological conditions on physiological and immunological performance as well as the milk constituents in female dromedary camel in Northwest Coast of Egypt. Methods : Blood and milk samples were collected from female camels (Camelus dromedarius) from two different environments, farm and grazing. Hematological, physiological and immunological parameters were measured in the late pregnancy phase, post-partum phase, lactating phase and non-lactating phase (n in each group=10). The constituents of colostrum and milk were also compared.
