Twenty four (24) male camel calves aged 2 - 3 years old from Sudanese Arabi breed were used to evaluate the effect of feeding Moringa olifera and Prosopis chilensis as additive feeds on carcass characteristics of Sudanese Arabi camel. Camel calves were divided into four similar groups (6 animals in each group). Each group was fed individually under semi-intensive feeding system. The first group fed on Moringa olifera (M) ration, the second group on Prosopis chilens (P), the third group on a mixture diet from Moringa olifera and Prosopis chilensis (M+P) and the fourth group was left on natural pasture as control. The data were statistically analyzed according to the Complete Randomized Design (CRD). The results revealed that, no significant differences (p ≥ 0.05) were detected on carcass cut weights among the three rations M, P and M + P. But the highest values for; hot and cold back legs (58.00 ± 6.08 and 57.00 ± 6.08kg); hot and cold hump cut weights (5.50 ± 3.04 and 5.17 ± 2.93kg) respectively, were obtained from camels that were fed M meal. While the highest values for hot and cold fore legs cut weights (44.00 ± 11.53 and 42.67 ± 11.06kg) respectively, were achieved when the camels were fed on P diet. Also the highest vales for; hot and cold ribs (35.00 ± 6.08 and kg) and hot and cold neck cuts (17.17 ± 1.26 and 16.17 ± 1.71kg) respectively, were reported when animals were fed M+P ration. On the contrast, the lowest values for the previous hot and cold carcass cuts weights were obtained when animals fed depending on natural grazing.
