Abstract

Seventeen adult pleuriparous camels belonging to National Research Centre on Camel, Bikaner, India were examined for presence of follicle (>10 mm diameter) with the help of ultrasound scanner. They were mated with a virile stud and blood samples were collected immediately after mating (day 0) followed by day 7, 14, 21, 30 and 45 post mating. Sera were analysed for progesterone concentration to determine status of pregnancy. Failure of fertilization and/or nidation (66.7%) and inovulation (33.3%) were observed to be the main causes of pregnancy failures. No case of early embryonic mortality (between day 21 and 45) was observed in this study.
