CAMEL RUMINAL BACTERIA,THEIR COUNT AND ANTIBACTERIAL EFFECT INCOMPARSION TO OTHER RUMINANT ANIMALS

Abstract

The baicterial and fungal population in the rumen fluid was measured by using, different Vcultures mediia and incubation temperature. The Psychrophil, Camel, higher mean of mesophils,‘psychrophilsj, coli form and fungi count was found in the rumenal fluid of sheep. While highermean of staphylococci and Escherichia coli count was observed in the rumenal fluid of camel.Significant mean difference among microbial population in the rumenal fluid was observedbetween camel and sheep and between sheep and cow concerning the psychrophilic bacteria Also _significant mean difference was observed in E coli mean count among camel ,sheep and cow I,rumenal fluid microbial population .There was no significant difference in the mean count ofmesophils ,coliforrn ,staphy1ococci and fungi.A freshly isolated _E.coli from rumenal fluid of camel had antibacterial activity against 'Streptococcus: spp and Staph aureus
