Abstract
Two hundred and eighty head belong to five breed types of Sudanese camel (Bishari, Arabi, Daili, Anafi and Kenani) were randomly selected from Gadarif state. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of breed types, sex and age group on some body measurements of these animals. Body measurements were taken using metric tape (height at wither, heart girth, barrel girth, neck length, face length, tail length, and body weight). Averages of height at wither, heart girth, barrel girth, neck length, face length, tail length and body weight were 1.85±0.02 m, 2.02±0.02 m, 2.52±0.02 m, 1.13±0.01 m, 58.84±0.28 cm, 68.60±0.42 cm and 512.30±7.84 kg respectively. The results also revealed that body measurements were significantly affected by type of camel and age group. The Kenani camel showed the highest values followed by other breed types. Regarding to the age the camels (8 to 9) years had significantly high values in all body measurements followed by those in (10 to 12) years, while the animals in the first group ≤ 4 years recorded the lowest values. Furthermore, the results showed that the sex of camel significantly affected the heart girth, face length and body weight; and the males had significantly higher (P< 0.05) values than those of females.
