L’approche participative : quels impacts sur les changements de pratique en biosécurité en élevage avicole ?

Abstract : In the recent context of avian influenza outbreaks in the French poultry sector, several orders were issued by the Ministry of Agriculture to ensure the biosecurity of the farms. Faced with the difficulties encountered by poultry farmers in the application of prescriptive measures, the project PartAge tests a participatory approach to support farmers in improving their poultry farm‘s biosecurity. The project comprises three phases and includes 22 farmers belonging to two groups: one in production label and the other standard. The objective of the project is to evaluate whether an alternative approach to prescription would improve compliance with biosecurity measures in poultry farming. As part of the second phase of the project, participatory meetings were organized and the problematic of this study is to evaluate the impact of these meetings on farmers' practices regarding biosecurity. To answer this issue, individual semi-directive interviews were conducted. The results show that there have been changes in the knowledge, attitude and practice of the farmers, which is consistent with the plebiscite for the exchanges between peers and despite the negative opinions expressed by some farmers on the progress of the participative meetings. From these conclusions, the next participative meetings of the project will be able to adapt to the wishes of the breeders. The final results of this project may lead to the adoption of more participatory approaches in the future in addition or substitution of prescriptive ones in the accompaniment of farmers for a better health security of the farms.
