Évaluation de la double performance économique et environnementale des élevages laitiers biologiques de la Mayenne

Abstract : CIVAM BIO 53 has done a techno-economic reference table of organic dairy farming in Mayenne (France) for four years, using a tool from the sustainable agriculture network (RAD in french). This study is dealing with the accounting results of a 19 organic farms sample and also with their environmental results. The techno-economic indicators of the group are better than the ones from the western F.A.D.N data sample managed by the french ministry of agriculture (RICA) on 2014, they are similar of the RAD on 2014. The food autonomy considerably reduces the average food cost to 51€/1000L which is near 3 times less than the conventional groupe of comparison (RICA). This low cost is allowed by a thrifty management and a maximization of pasture. The farms create an added value bigger than RICA so they are more economically efficient (respectively 48% and 33% of ratio added value by product of activity). This efficient and autonomous driving allows very good environmental results with a nitrogen balance of 17 kgN/ha of utilized agricultural area. There is a variability inter-farms and it shows the diversity of systems in organic dairy farming.
