Gestion de la santé animale : Représentations de la santé et appropriations de ses outils et démarches de pilotage par les éleveurs porcins et avicoles des Pays de la Loire

Abstract : In a context who lead towards a production more sustainable and more respectful of animal welfare ways of managing health have to be renewed. As consequence, tools and approaches used by farmers to monitor and manage health must evolve in all productions including porcine and poultry ones. This study was focused on 3 tools and approaches: use of videos presenting a practice, participation to breeders’ discussion group and a meeting with several partners to tackle health. The study has as objectives to highlight farmers’ definition of health and health management, to understand how they are supported concerning health and to get to know their restraints and motivations to health management tools and approaches adoption. In order to answer those, a qualitative study has been carried out with 9 porcine and 9 meat poultry breeders from Pays de la Loire region (France). By studying their practices and perceptions, different ways of defining an animal healthy condition appeared. Health management, done at different time scales, presents different practices following farms. Breeders are satisfied by their partners communication, but some prefer that they exchange only in their presence. Despite mixed interest towards the 3 tools studied, farmers find them interesting to develop.
