Comprendre comment les éleveurs de bovins allaitants mobilisent des informations pour concevoir et piloter leur activité d’élevage : distinguer le Support, l’Origine et le Contenu (SOC).

Abstract : The aim of this study is to understand how beef cattle farmers mobilise information to design and to monitor their system, and to identify the role of “official” advice within all available sources and channels of information. A survey has been carried out among 30 farmers in three administrative departments of French specialised grassland area. Four strategies (S1 to S4) were identified according to information mobilisation and discussed in relation with the farm characteristics and with the farmer’s point of view about his activity. These are the following : S1: to mobilise unofficial sources of information coming from well-known counterparts for technical aspects of management; S2: to mobilise unofficial sources of information to help them to orient their system but not for technical aspects; S3: to mobilise technical official sources of information to maximise income, to improve skills and to become independent; S4: to mobilise technical official sources of information to progress. We propose to consider information as “immaterial” resources for farmers as well as other resources (herd, pasture, workforce) which use is usually studied by agronomists.
