Abstract : In Saudi Arabia, the camel is representing the old generations while technology is presenting the new generation. However, two generations are mixed together to keep old culture in modern form. For these, we started to build information system to save and process data collected in camels. This database using Access tool is the start point for establishing a convenient control of performances of our animals. Our database is including five main items regarding identification (camel characteristics), reproduction (mating and calving events), milk production (individual produced quantity including milk flow), milk composition (12 parameters), milk processing (pasteurization, cheese making) and diseases. This relational database allows assuming a regular monitoring of all performances, a primary step for implementing a selection program and contributing to the genetic improvement of the species. The present paper is describing the Conceptual Model of the Data and shows some potentialities for data treatment. (Résumé d'auteur)
