Where can I find information about commercial camel breeding?
F.J. WisconsinAnswer: The best source of information on breeding and raising camels is the American Camel Club Resource Directory. Contact Rare Breeds Journal at www.rarebreedsjournal.com/ for information on how to get this directory. Rare Breeds Journal usually has a short article on camels in each issue, and two are cited below.Also under Resources are links to information from the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection dealing with Animal Import permits, and the Wisconsin Livestock Identification Consortium on Livestock Premises Registration.ResourcesAnon. 2004.
