Camel production in the Islamic republic of Mauritania
The estimated number of camels in Mauritania is 812 000, about 20.5% of the livestock population. The numbers of camels, cattle and small ruminants in Mauritania in each yr between 1966 and 1979 are tabulated. Camels provide about 16 200 tonnes of meat per yr (approx. 19.8% of the red meat production). Annual milk and hide production from camels is about 219 200 and 6500 tonnes resp. Five breeds of camels are briefly described; the Mehari is the most important of these.
