EFFECT OF USING MAGNETIC WATER ON PHYSIOLOGICAL STATE OF DROMEDARY CAMEL
Experimental work of the present study was carried out in camel farm in North Coast in Matrouh, Egypt. There was an improvement in water quality when exposed to the magnetic field with considerable change in the pH, total dissolved solids, total hardness, conductivity, salinity, dissolved oxygen, evaporating temperature, minerals and organic matter. Magnetic process of water such drinking tap water by exposed to magnetic field. Thirty growing camels were randomly distributed into three similar groups of male and females (10 each) treatments of feeding trial included tap water without or with magnetic exposure (control,1200, and 3600 Gauss) for C,T1, T2, treatments, respectively. Result showed that magnetic treatments induced greater effect on magnetic treated water. camels were consumed fed low-level magnetic water had higher insignificantly final body weight and weight gain at (12 weeks) than those in control (T1) and the higher level in magnetic water (T3). Feed intake as DM was higher in (T3).feed conversion was improved for camel drank magnetic water than treatments (T1) and significantly. Result showed that magnetic water treatments did not affect on concentration of blood metabolites which were similar in all groups, while concentration of glucose increased significantly due to both tested treatments. Count of red blood cells and white blood cells were nearly similar in all treatments. it could be concluded that magnetizing tap water by two levels (1200 and 3600 Gauss) led to an improvement respecting growth performance of dromedary camel.
