She will be flushed 8 days after mating and any embryos recovered transferred into synchronized recipient camels. Pregnancy is diagnosed after 20 days and monitored up to 60 days at which time the pregnant camels must leave the premises. All pregnant and non – pregnant camel must leave by the end of the season.
