Abstract:

India ranks tenth in the world with 0.38 million camel population. In November 2016, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) had approved camel milk for sale purpose. Camel milk is rich in minerals like Iron (0.32-0.36 mg/dl), Zinc (1.2-6.3 mg/dl), Copper (0.09-0.5 mg/dl) and Vitamins B1 (0.03 mg%), Vitamin B6 (0.05 mg%), Vitamin B12 (0.0002 mg%) and Vitamin C (40-50 mg/kg). Camel milk acts as immunomodulator due to presence of high amount of lysozyme, lactoferrin, immunoglobulins, lactoperoxidase and helpful in management of type 1 diabetes due to presence of insulin and insulin like protein (45-128 unit/litre). The study analysed the socio-economic status of 200 camel rearers in the State of Rajasthan in tabular form and identify the various problem faced by camel rearers in camel rearing using Rank Based Quotient technique. The most severe problem was no organized market for selling the produce followed by lengthy procedures for getting credit from government institutions for marketing purpose. The study revealed that with addressing these issues the camel rearers get benefitted from the present situation.
