La production laitière dans les montagnes françaises : une dynamique particulière pour les Alpes du Nord

Abstract : In France, the strong link between milk quotas and land and the distribution of milk references to farmers having priority has helped to keep a significant number of dairy farms in the mountains. In addition to these public policy choices, the dynamism of local actors (fabrication of cheeses under signs of quality) also played an important part during the two preceding decades. On the basis of the Farm Accountancy Data Network (FADN-2000), a comparative analysis (structural, economic and financial) of French dairy farms is proposed according to their localization (mountain and plain). An analysis of the dairy sector of the region "Northern Alps" is then presented, using several statistical tools. In the mountains, dairy farms cover 35% of the usable agricultural area and ensure nearly 40% of the agricultural production. The 27 200 "professional" dairy farms located in the mountains have, on average, a quota of 150 800 kg, 61 hectares and a farm income of 22 400 euros (against respectively 222 700 kg, 72 hectares and 31500 euros in plains).
