The Bactrian camel's breeding season takes place in March and April. Camels are induced ovulators, which means they only ovulate when stimulated by mating. If a female does not have the opportunity to mate, her ovarian follicles will degenerate. Their estrous cycle is about 13-40 days, and receptivity usually last between three and four days.
Camels are ruminants but camels do not chew their food very well before swallowing. The first stomach stores the food that is not completely chewed. Later, this food (or cud) returns to the camel's mouth, and the camel chews it again. Then the camel swallows the cud and it goes to the other parts of the stomach to be completely digested.
Reproduction is often the key to improved livestock performance. Reproduction in the camel is not as well understood as in more common species of domestic animals. This publication is, therefore, likely to be of considerable interest and value to scientists, to camel owners and those who seek to support them through extension and other services.
