Camel Farm is a project of the livestock sector. This project is proposed to be set up in any rural and peri-urban areas around the metropolitan and other major cities across the country having abundant water and availability of fodder, make a better choice for such farming. These areas should also have access to livestock mandies and veterinary services.

In this pre-feasibility study, all the calculations have been based on a breeder herd size of 55 camels, (2 males and 53 females). 70% of the females in the parent herd are assumed to be pregnant and would give birth to 38 camel calves after every 2 years. The male camel calves are sold after being raised for two years. The female calves would be added to the breeding herd and would reproduce after 5 years and add to the milk production. Camel cows would be producing approximately 2,250 litres of milk for a year.

The milk from the camel cow would be sold directly to consumers or processing companies. The reported milk yield ranges between 900 and 4,000 litres in a lactation period of 250 to more than 500 days. The average daily yield under different management systems is reported to vary from 3 to 9 litres. The females are milked twice to four times a day in Pakistan.

The total initial cost for setting up a Camel Farm of proposed capacity is estimated at Rs. 20.80 million. The project is proposed to be financed through 50% debt and 50% equity. The NPV is projected around Rs. 16.31 million, with an IRR of 30% and a payback period of 4.22 years. The legal business status of this project is proposed as ‘Sole Proprietorship’.
