Evaluation du bien-être animal d'un troupeau de vaches allaitantes de race Maraîchine, au sein de l'unité expérimentale INRAE de Saint Laurent de la Prée

Abstract : The aims of the internship were (1) processing and analysing results of Welfare Quality diagnostic carried out at Saint-Laurent de la Prée unit on January 2020, (2) making links between results and breeding system and (3) analysing the QBA repeatability (Qualitative Behaviour Assessment) trough 4 observers. These aims were achieved through 3 literature reviews, simulations on Welfare Quality ® website and astatistical reviewon R. Results show farm’s welfare level as “Enhanced” according to the 4 welfare categories distinguished Welfare Quality diagnostic. Principles scores are all good (the 4 are between 64 and 77) and steady (all are “enhanced”), which means that all aspects of welfare are considered in the farm. Only two criterion score poorly: absence ofprolonged hunger (54,8) and comfort around resting (51,4). Morphologies variability may due to Maraîchines hardy breedand comfort around resting may be influenced by quality and frequency of mulching, and running of drinking trough. Protocol boundaries areprecisely to rely on dairy cows and not to considerdiversity of beef cattle situations and breed. QBA analysis showed a difference in the observers’perception of animals’behaviour and its consequences on welfare. Proposals for upgrading and following-up animal welfare have been set out.
