Are Camel Milk Farms Ethical And Moral?
When it comes to purchasing any kind of animal related produce, it is essential to make sure that you know and trust the process of the products that you are buying. The Camel Milk Co Australia products come from plains of lush land where the camels are treated like family.
The Camel Milk Co farm ensures that:
- Balanced Nutritional Diet
- Camels are Chemical and Drug Free
- Mothers and Babies kept together
- Milk is shared with babies
- Male calves are happily rehomed (once of age)
- Herds are kept disease free
Are the baby camels taken from their mothers so that we can purchase their milk?
Absolutely not, at The Camel Milk Co Australia we keep our mums and babies together sharing the milk with them. Camels are like humans yet once again. They have oxytocin release when stimulated, just like people do. This enables the milk to be let down from the milk vein into the udder. Traditional dairy practices, especially with cows mean the more you milk them the more they produce; a calf is not needed for this to happen. However, Camels if not content and with their baby will not release and let down their milk. The happiness of both the mothers and the calves is at utmost importance.
“UNLIKE TRADITIONAL DAIRIES WE KEEP OUR MOTHERS AND BABIES TOGETHER.THIS METHOD ALLOWS OUR CAMELS TO BE RELAXED AND HAPPY, ‘BECAUSE HAPPY CAMELS GIVE QUALITY MILK’”
What happens to the male camel calves?
People always question what we do with our male calves. When they are of age, we can easily rehome our male calves due to their intensive handling as a baby in the dairy. Their gorgeous personality’s shine through making them ideal as much loved pets or working animals.
What do Camels eat?
We grow all our own feed on the farm. This lets us have complete control over our camel’s nutritional intake. Both Megan and Chris have advanced Diplomas in Agriculture, with vast farming knowledge and experience. So they have the technical insight to provide correct and balanced nutrition to our girls.

Herds are kept disease free:
Australia boasts the only disease-free herds of camels in the world. Isolation and strict quarantine laws have enabled this. Many countries struggle with disease epidemics and many are zoonotic. Our Camels live a healthy life and their milk is trusted to be safe to drink and of superior quality.
All The Camel Milk Co Australia products are produced with our camel’s well being in mind. The process is moral and ethical, one you can trust right from the farm to your doorstep.
