A camel

Hello and welcome to BBC Xtra English!

Today Anna and Louay talk about the first camel farm in Europe.

Frank Smits is a young agriculture graduate and the man behind the first camel farm in Europe.

He set up the farm as a business venture after finding out that there was a large market for camel milk in Europe, particularly amongst the migrant Morroccan and Somali communities.

But it was not easy; Frank told the BBC that camels need a lot of care and for a camel to give milk, she needs to be very relaxed and comfortable.

Frank also told the BBC about the benefits of camel milk and how many people drink it because they believe it can cure diseases such as diabetes and bowel problems.

Although this has not been conclusively proven, there are tests being done on the camel milk and Frank's father is involved in one of these projects.

He works at a hospital a few miles away from the farm and is looking into reports that camel milk not only has medicinal properties but can also improve peoples lives by making them feel better.

Even though camel milk is not as famous as cows milk, Frank is still happy with his business venture.

He sells outside mosques and in over fifty shops in Holland, as well as exporting to Germany, Belgium and Britain.

Frank is also trying to produce other goods as well such as cheese and yoghurt made from camel milk.

Despite that I did not ever taste it before but I think it is saltier than the traditional milk. Many people acroos the arab world specially gulf countries drunk it widely and up to my knowledge it is filled with & rich in vitamins and some sceintific statistics shown that can be used as anti-diabetic therapy Osama, Alexandria, Egypt

I live in Saudi Arabia and it's one of the biggest consumers of "Camels Milk" in the world.
But i've never tasted it before. Honestly.. I don't know why ! Maybe because my family don't drink it.
However I knew from some friends that there are so many benefits we can get them from "Camel Milk". I hope to try it soon.
Samir, Hail, Saudi Arabia

There are a lot of benefits and properties about camel milk not only as curing of different deseases but also to prevent perils and support the human body with all vitamines and essential needs.
Hayder Jumayli, Doha, Qatar

I have been hearing since childhood about camel milk's multi benefits as it cures, or at least helps, against some diseases such as diabetese and abdominal problems.
My father's close friend has some camels.He milks his camels so often and gives us some litres of it.
I drink it and feel it cleans my bowls. I 'd like to tell them about a prophetic saying that encarages us as muslims to drink camels' milk and use camels' urine as they (milk and urine) cure some diseases.
