The present study was done to investigate the different constraints about camel management and marketing. A total of 120 camel owners’ families were randomly selected from 8 purposively selected villages from 2 purposively selected districts i.e. Bikaner and Jaisalmer on the basis of camel population. The quantitative and qualitative data were collected through semi-structured interview schedule, discussion and observation. The investigation revealed that major constraints were decreasing utility of camel in farm operations and transportation due to mechanisation, lack of organised market for selling of camel and its product and insufficient grazing pasture. Decreasing price of camel, high cost of feed and fodder and high cost of veterinary treatment were the next serious constraint in camel management and marketing.
