Camel Training for the Camel Milk Industry

Posted on May 28, 2015 at 6:50 PM Comments comments (62)

Camel Milk in Australia is a new and very exciting emerging industry.


In recent times, interest in this amazing product has more than doubled and with those already in the established cow diary industry becoming more and more interested in camel milk, the future is looking bright and lucrative to those who follow through with plans of creating their own camel dairy.


Camel milk has been described as the next new super food, even though it has been consumed for thousands of years.


Camel milk has also been reported to aid and assist with a number of medical conditions.


Camel milk is the closest type of milk to that of human milk.


The major issue new commers to the camel milking industry in Australia have is how to train the camel for such a venture. Without speaking the obvious, a camel is not a horse, nor is it a cow. Camels think differently and require their own brand of training techniques for a camel dairy to sucessfully become functional and profitable.


Astute business operators will employ the expertise of a specialist to train them to understand the camel, understand the techniques used for training camels, gain the tools for training camels and continue to get mentoring to ensure the success of their business investment.


Australiancamels.com specialises in the training of people to train their camels using a method called, "The Trust Based Method for Training Camels".


This method offers the owner of camels the ability to gain understanding of the camel and the tools necessary for training camels effectively for industries like the emerging camel milk industry. Understanding and tools that can be built upon for creating a successful camel milking dairy of your own.

Camel Trekking, Flinders Ranges, South Australia

Posted on February 5, 2015 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (0)

Once in a while you surf the net and come across something totally unique and different. So you've landed upon this site. You've had a look around and began to realise that this is different. Something you've probably never considered before. Camel Trekking in the Flinders Ranges.

In ancient times, people moved across this vast continent using song lines and stories to get from place to place. 

Nowadays, we use maps from Geoscience which outline the topography and approximate features of the landscape. Using modern technology and Geoscience maps, we are able to know at any stage of traversing the continent, exactly where we are, down to the closest meter.

However:

 

  • A map will not tell you what the scenery will be like.
  • A map will not show you the sunrises and sunsets of the Australian Desert.
  • A map can give an approximate indication of what wildlife may exist in such locations but without seeing this for yourself, you will never know!
  • A map cannot describe the friendships developed by a group traversing the country using a map as the tool of navigation.
  • A map will never be able to describe the sense of being a part of something bigger than ourselves as we travel country where no-tourist trail has been set, no road, no wagon, no track, no people!
Camel Exploration Treks with Outback Australian Camels in the Flinders Ranges are different.

We are not another camel ride operation! We are explorers of our country and invite you to do the same. Discovering the land with others, seeing the wildlife, the sunsets and developing the friendships as we discover ancient country whilst the camels carry our supplies. 

Now That's Camel Trekking

Camel Trekking. What's it like?

Posted on February 5, 2015 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)

So often, people ask us what is camel trekking like. 

For each and every person, it is different but for us it's about being back in the real world, not the world of concrete and glass, schedules and bills to be paid. Here is an extract from the book Camelman Dreaming to describe a day on an exploration camel safari in the heart of the Australian Desert.

As we crossed over a sand dune, in the distance, a shimmer of reflection from the water hit our eyes. There was pure white sand and the region was teeming with wildlife. Birds of all sorts, washing, swimming and feeding! This was a piece of paradise in amongst the sand dunes. Lunch today was on the shores of the lake and the camels had a drink from the waters of the lake. It is possibly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in the desert so far. Again, the country opened up even more in the afternoon and the walking was easier.

A series of sand dunes, one after the other, started to form and so we decided to camp on one of the dunes. Camping in sand dune country was bliss. I thoroughly enjoyed sitting on top of the dune looking down into the valley and watched the camels feed. In the distance, a herd of about twenty wild camels could be seen. I had the rifle with me just in case they came our way. Fortunately, they went in the opposite direction. Tonight was heaven! On a sand dune with squeaky clean sand, a warm fire, the camels well fed and happy, a hot meal and a shooting star light show that could never be imitated on a television screen. I sure didn’t miss the idiot box!

Camel Milk In Australia

Posted on December 20, 2014 at 7:40 PM Comments comments (0)


Reportably, Australia has over one million camels in the vastness of the outback. Over past years, the Australian Government opened up a massive political and social divide by granting $19 Million for the arial and ground destruction of 160,000 camels over a four year period.

However, a few entrepteneurs are well on the way to using feral camels by domesticating them and milking the ships of the desert.

The demand for camel milk is enormous and with too few daries for camel milk in operation, the price of this "white gold" as it has been described is currently at a premium price.

SBS (The Feed) recently reported on the feral camel situation at one particular cattle station in the Northern Territory. Their problems with the feral herds who rome through the outback and their solutions to these problems are reported within the video.

On the other side of the continent, in Queensland, a camel dairy has been created and is combining forces with a local cheese factory.

Great watching and of course such a topic raises questions about how best we can manage the feral herd to create good for mankind and the camels themselves.

Enjoy!

Camel Trekking Adventure Holidays in Australia

Posted on December 2, 2014 at 9:50 AM Comments comments (0)

So you've been to Bali, the Gold Coast and maybe even Europe for your holidays in the past. Travelling opens the mind and allows for a change in scenery. What's next? What other type of experience could you have that makes your holiday time a memorable one.

Already you are starting to think! What haven't I ever done before. What about my own country or if you are from overseas, what about the real Australian landscape.

Well, here's an idea I can almost guarantee you have never thought of before. 

What about an Expedition Style Camel Safari deep in the desert of Australia? My God! That sounds like a challenge. What a vast difference to sipping the usual cocktails in a resort overlooking yet another beach. So what exactly is an Expedition Style Camel Safari?

Camel safaris and Camel Treks for the tourist market in the past have been a number of days riding a camel going from pre destined locations to locations along a typical route or even desert tracks and are designed for what has been classed in the tourism industry as the soft market. This is where the participants are not stretched and challenged . Adventure tourism is different. Such adventures like the Kokoda Trail and hiking in the SW wilderness of Tasmania are examples of Adventure Holidays that require preparation, effort, determination and the ability to overcome challenges.

Expedition Style Camel Safaris are all of the above in so many ways.


The camels are the mode of transport for all of the food, water and camping equipment. The expedition leader is the navigator, the cook, the educator of the participants about the camel, handling the camels and acting as a guide for the participant to become fully engaged in the operation of the expedition. 

The big difference to a riding safari and expedition style safari is the level of active participation. The expeditioners do not ride the camel. The camels have their purpose which is to venture deep into the wilderness into regions that four wheel drives cannot go. With everything on the camels, all of the needs of the travelling part are met and the opportunity to discover country that has never been seen before rises dramatically.

Can you imagine being in a location that no-one else, not even the expedition leader has ever seen before? 

No Roads, No Tracks, No Tourists, No one but nature herself.

Now that's great trekking.

Expedition Style Camel Trekking and Safaris are not for everyone. Not everyone is up for such a challenge. However, some are prepared to stretch themselves, to discover the rewards of traversing the desert, exploring and discovering what nature has in stall for the true adventurer amongst us

We recognise that there is a need for the true adventurer who is looking for a camel trek full of challenges and adventure. That is why we have developed Outback Australian Camels. Allowing the adventurer to be a part of something very unique and different.

Are you one of the adventurers looking for your next holiday?

Have a chat with us. 

We know what camel trekking is able to achieve when the will is strong enough.

The Advantages Of Having Your Camels Trained With Trust Based Training

Posted on November 27, 2014 at 2:00 AM Comments comments (0)

Camels are a very receptive animal. They have been used domestically for thousands of years and have found their way into the folklore of many cultures around the world.

From this, old camel handling methods have developed in conjunction with culture of the regions where camels have been domesticated for work. Most of these regions are harsh environmentally. That is, they are usually low rainfall regions where food sources are scarce and the terrain is harsh. 

There is an old but very wise saying, : a thirsty camel is a dangerous camel. This comes about when a camel is at water for the first time in quite a while. They want one thin only, water. The same goes for food. A camel will forego any instructions for food, that is unless instructions is accompanied with harsh and physically violent action by the handler.

Whilst this may or may not still be the case in suchg regions of the world, in the western world whereby camel food and water is plentiful for our pet camels, attention can be diverted to the more spiritual connection that can be achieved between camel and handler.

The camel is happy, has readily available source of water, food and space. Not much is asked from the camel compared to the working camels in some overseas locations and is considered to be a part of the family.

This allows for different techniques of camel handling to take place, connecting with the camel in a deep soulful manner that has a bond between handler and camel that one finds hard to describe.

Learning the techniques of such handling is a journey within itself. You have no choice but to have to look deep within yourself to see who you are as a person, how you are presented to others, your good traits and where there is room for improvement. Tve he camel sees all of who you are.

How do you channel what you want the camel to experience from you? 

What sort of experience do you want the camel to have when connecting with you?

What will the lasting memories be of you in the camels mind?

How can you use the connecting bonds between you and the camel to a mutual benificially relationship?

So many questions arise from this topic as it hits hard at the very core of who we are as people in relationship to the animal kingdom.

Trust Based Camel Handling deals with all of this and so much more.

Camel Training in Australia

Posted on November 26, 2014 at 3:40 PM Comments comments (0)

Do you own or are considering owning a camel(s) in Australia?

 

Perhaps you are one of the many people who have purchased one or maybe more camels as a method of weed control on your property, for a pet or even a specific project you have in mind.

 

Perhaps you have bought your camel(s) thinking that you will train them for a reason, ie, to do a trek with them some day, to ride for your own pleasure, to start up a business with camels or even to pull a wagon for the holiday of a lifetime.

 

 

You've taken your camels home with you and very quickly realised, they are not like a horse, a dog or any other animal you've ever had before. Their behaviour is beginning to confuse you and you are unsure if what you have done was the right thing to do.

 

You have started to search around for information and realised that there is very little out there that can help you.

Sounds familiar?

 

 

We know your story very well. We hear this all of the time and have been there ourselves many years ago.

 

So where to next? You have already decided that you want to continue with your plans but also how to train the camel(s) in a humane manner using the best possible techniques available.

 

Well......you've reached the right place.

 

We have an exclusive service available that involves an experienced cameleer and camel trainer to come to you.

There are no inhumane acts of violence upon the camel, in fact, Trust Based Training is directly opposite to "old style" methods of training camels. It is called Trust Based Training for a very good reason. The camel will learn to trust you and you will learn to trust your camel.

 

It's all about developing a healthy and respectful connection between you and your camel, to understand your camel and to grow with your camel as further training develops using the specific principles of Trust Based Training.

 

The sad part is that there are very few trainers of camels using Trust Based Training, a method originally developed by Australia's foremost cameleer, Phil Gee.

 

Australian Camels honours this method and has included in the training process, elements of effective connection based upon Internationally recognised techniques of animal communication and behaviour.

 

So........

 

Do you want your camel to grow with you?

Do you want yourself and the camel to have a healthy and respectful relationship?

Do you want a process of training camels that will last well beyond the week of intensive one on one training?
