Modelling small ruminant systems in Mediterranean areas

Abstract : This paper examines the issues and requirements of simulation models for small ruminant systems in Mediterranean areas. Due to the absence of published models suited to these systems, we analyze the features of existing models designed for other species and other geographical areas, but focussed on similar issues (adaptive abilities of the females, feed self-sufficiency, sustainable use of rangeland). Flock and land heterogeneity, which are described in these models, should be given high interest, since they are typical of small ruminant systems in Mediterranean areas. Setting precise modelling objectives in relation to the final users, and exploiting complementary sources of information including expert knowledge are basic conditions for building a farming system model.
