Gestion de la reproduction en élevages ovins et caprins, conventionnels et biologiques : état des lieux, nouveaux outils et évaluation de leur acceptabilité (REPROBIO)

Abstract : A major concern for small ruminant productions is to control the seasonality of the reproduction. Alternatives to hormonal treatment for the induction and the synchronization of oestrus or approaches based on precision livestock farming are developed both for conventional and organic farms. In the REPROBIO project, we established the current state of reproduction management practices implemented in the six French main production areas from surveys of farm holders and sheep and goat breeders under both conventional and organic farming. Then, we evaluated the acceptability of the actors for two innovative tools related to the reproduction management in farms, and developed in the frame of this R & D project: i) the use of pheromones involved in the male effect (an alternative to the hormonal treatment for induction and synchronization of oestrus) and ii) the automated oestrus detection, to optimize the mating time for artificial insemination (AI) or natural service (automated oestrus detector (Alpha-D®) for sheep, automated activity monitoring collars (Heatime®) for goat)
