In order to obtain optimum profit from camel rearing it is essential to study effective utilization of production of camel hair. Annual hair production of 590 dromedary camels belonging to 3 breeds that belonged to 5 different age groups were studied. The Bikaneri breed of camel produced maximum annual hair yield followed by Jaisalmeri and Kachchhi breed. The male camel produced heavier annual hair yield than female in all breeds.
