      HOW DO YOU MILK THOSE THINGS?

      Mauritania is now constructing its first milk facility.
      The processor is expected to bottle approximately
      200,000 liters of milk per day. There are few cows in
      Mauritania. Their milk of choice is camel's milk.

      Mauritania is a Northwest African desert nation of
      over 2 million Sunni Muslims, nearly a million of
      whom are nomads. Slavery was abolished in 1980,
      but it is estimated that ten percent of the population
      still live in servitude. There is only one physician per
      11,000 citizens (US= 1 per 365), and the life
      expectancy for males is just 47 years.

      Mauritania's new state-of-the art milk processor
      will ultra-pasteruize camel's milk by heating it for very high
      temperatures. That way, it can be packaged and
      stored for up to six months.

      They'll also be manufacturing camel butter and cheese.
      Perhaps Mauritania will even produce a brand
      of camel ice cream. I can see it now. Ben-Sayed
      & Jamal's: Lumpy Humpy.

      Will Monsanto develop a new market for
      a genetically engineered version of Dromedary
      Udder Somato-Tropin? (DUST)

      Camels birth one calf, usually between 13-14 months
      after conception. The female becomes sexually mature
      at the age of five years. Baby males are sold for meat.
      The camel is Africa's traditional beast of burden, and
      will now be placed under an even greater burden:
      to produce baby camel's food so that it can be used
      for human consumption.
