  The present study aimed to investigate the effect of nutrition on body weight gain, ovaries development, blood components (total protein, albumen, globulin, cholesterol and glucose) and hormone level (estradiol and progesterone) in pre-pubertal she-camels. Fourteen dromedary she-camels (Camelus dromedarius) were divided in two groups (A and B) similar body weight and age at the start of the experiment (200 kg and 12 month, respectively). Group A received diet with 13% Crude Protein (CP) and 2.9 Mcal Metabolisable Energy (ME). Group B received the traditional diet of the farm. Both diets contained 25:75 forage:concentrate. Individual feed intake was calculated after 14 days of adaptation period. Feed offered and orts was recorded daily during the whole experimental period of 12 months. Blood samples were taken from each group every 15 days throughout the experimental period. Estradiol, progesterone concentrations were measured using ELISA kits. Body weight and average daily gain for the Ist 6 months did not show significant differences between treatments. On the contrary for the last 6 months, treatment A significantly increased body weight and daily weight gain when compared to B (70.07±8.17 kg and 0.389±0.05 kg day-1 vs. 37.86±8.17 kg and 0.210±0.05 kg day-1, respectively. Group A was more efficient converting feed to body weight comparing with group B. Feed Conversion Ratio (FCR) for the whole period was 11.25 and 13.74 for Group A and B, respectively. Group B had greater ovary size than Group A but the difference was not significant. Size of right ovary was smaller than the left one and season had positive effects on both right and left ovary sizes. Greater ovary sizes were observed in Winter and Spring comparing with Summer and Autumn. Group A had higher blood estradiol level comparing with Group B while there was no difference between groups in progesterone levels. It was concluded that feeding regime did not affect body weight, daily body weight gain and blood progesterone levels but improved feed conversion ratio and blood estrogen levels.

  The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of nutrition on body weight gain, ovarian development, blood components (total protein, albumen, globulin, cholesterol, glucose) and hormone (estradiol, progesterone, FSH, LH, GnRH and Leptin) levels in peri-pubertal female camels. Fourteen dromedary females (Camelus dromedarius) were divided into two groups (A and B) with respective average body weight and age of 381 kg, 24 months and 458 kg, 24 months at the start of the experiment. Group A received a diet with 13% Crude Protein (CP) and 2.9 Mcal Metabolizable Energy (ME). Group B received the traditional diet of the farm with 12.43 CP and 2.7 ME. Both diets contained 1:3 forage:concentrate ratio. Individual feed intake was calculated after a 14 days adaptation period. Feed offered and orts were recorded daily during the entire experimental period of 24 months. Blood samples were taken from the same 5 animals in each group at 15 day intervals throughout the experimental period. Hormone concentrations were measured using specific ELISA kits. Initial body weight, final body weight and average daily gain for the two treatment groups were not significantly different. Group B had greater ovarian size than group A but the difference was also non-significant. The size of the right ovary was less than the left ovary. Season had no significant effect on ovary’s size. Group A camels tended to have higher blood estradiol, leptin, GnRh and LH levels than group B. However, the differences were not significant except in the case of estradiol. Progesterone and FSH levels were also comparable in the two groups. It was concluded that the feeding regimen used in this study did not significantly affect body weight, daily weight gain and blood progesterone level while a relative, though statistically non-significant, increase was recorded in blood estrogen, Leptin, GnRH and LH levels in group A.
