Place des prairies dans la gestion de la santé des troupeaux laitiers : profils d’éleveurs du Grand Ouest français en 2019

Abstract : At the level of dairy farms and territories, the services provided by grasslands are numerous (zootechnical, agronomic, environmental) and are more and more popular with research, agricultural development and dairy farmers. In this context, the Sant’innov project has focused on understanding the importance given to grasslands on farms linked to the management of animal health. Currently, research describes the advantages and risks of grazing on animal health. The purpose of this work is to characterize the links that breeders make between the use of grasslands in the forage system and the health of animals. This work, based on the comprehensive analysis of the speeches of 20 dairy farmers in Maine-et-Loire (France), has highlighted 6 types of breeders according to the way of managing the use of grasslands in the health management and thus make an inventory of their knowledge on these topics. This topic is little known among surveyed breeders, chosen with varied profiles. The influence of the passage out/in on the health of grazing animals is expressed without being able to objectify it. The management of the forage system and of animal health are not closely linked and are treated separately a breeder designs his grasslands according to the structure of his farm and his dairy cows’ needs and on the other hand he manages health by using care (alternative or allopathic). The use of concentrates and minerals adapted to the animals’ needs is more often addressed in relation to health.
