Abstract: Slaughter data from 104 Abhawi male camels were utilized to establish the relationship between carcass weight and some body measurements. Body measurements were recorded in animals arranged into 3 age groups (under 1.5 years, 1.5-3 years and 3-5 years). Measurements taken were: chest girth, hump girth, hip girth, body length, length of arm, circumference of arm, length of leg and circumference of thigh. Analysis of variance indicated a highly significant effect of age on all these measurements. Phenotypic correlations of carcass weight and the studied measurements were positive and significant in each age group, except for the length of leg. Carcass weight had higher associations with hip girth, chest girth and hump girth than with arm and leg measurements. The best partial and multiple regression models for predicting average carcass weight are presented
