The results of the present study showed that as the diameter of the ovulatory-sized follicle increases, the mean concentrations of estradio1-17[beta], progesterone and IGF-I in the FF concomitantly increases in the female dromedary camel
. Similarly, Rahman (8) reported that concentrations of estra-diol-17[beta] and progesterone in the follicular fluid increased with the growth of the follicles in the female dromedary camel

. The average daily gains in 2 months old Bikaneri and Jaisalmeri calves were 553.3 and 546.6 g, respectively as observed by Sahani et al.
In a previous report, a considerable number of dromedary camels
in Kenya were seropositive not only for influenza D but also for influenza C virus (ICV) (5).
"As new human cases of MERS-CoV continue to emerge, without any clues about the sources of infection except for people who caught it from other patients, these new results suggest that dromedary camels
may be one reservoir of the virus that is causing MERS-CoV in humans," Chantal Reusken of the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment in Bilthoven, the Netherlands, said.
Ranking of the major contributions of dromedary camel
was performed by using method described by International Livestock Center for Africa (ILCA, 1990).

However, the distance from the facial tuberosity to the infraorbital canal and from the latter to the root of the alveolar tooth directly ventral to it was 1.6-1.8 cm and 1.3-1.6 cm in west African dwarfs goats (Olopade & Onwuka, 2005); 2.06[+ or -]0.14 cm and 1.13[+ or -]0.11 cm in Gwembe Valley dwarf goat (Pares-Casanova et al, 2014); 2.8 cm and 2.5 cm in Iranian native cattle (Monfared, 2013b); 2.37[+ or -]0.009 cm and 0.72[+ or -]0.008 cm in blackbuck (Choudhary & Singh, 2015b); 2.19[+ or -]0.068 cm and 3.21[+ or -]0.078 cm, respectively in dromedary camel
(Choudhary et al., 2016) and 1.85[+ or -]0.14 cm and 1.75[+ or -]0.19 cm in black Bengal goat (Uddin et al, 2009).
In the study conducted in an organized dromedary camel
farm, an overall prevalence of ocular affections was recorded as 19.6 percent.
In conclusion, the present study suggests more than one tool for the diagnosis of Johne's disease in dromedary camel
