During three days, the Sommet de l'Elevage hosts conferences and professional meetings on agricultural topics.
(1) “LIT EHM, the co-construction: a factor for innovation on livestock farms”
(2) “CReA-VIANDE: science at the service of everybody
The GTV Auvergne (Groupement Technique Vétérinaire) is leading the EleVE project (for Eleveur Vétérinaire Environnement), the objective of which is to promote reasoned management of bovine parasitism and to enhance the veterinarian’s role as prescriber for antiparasitics. This project follows a study by the Groupement de Défense Sanitaire (GDS) du Cantal which revealed, on the part of breeders, a real need for information on bovine parasites and the means of combating these parasites. This study also revealed sometimes very high treatment costs.
The main objectives of the EleVE project are:
Unreasoned use of antiparasitic drugs is likely to promote the emergence of parasites resistant to treatment and, in the relatively short term, to lead to their ineffectiveness. Some molecules used also have harmful effects on the environment and strong societal demand calls for the abandonment of the too systematic use of biocides in animal husbandry.
54 farms supported by around twenty veterinary surgeries took part in this project. These farms were offered treatments adapted to their level of parasite infestation.
The project being completed a year ago, a review of it is proposed during this conference.
Genetics is a strategic sector for the animal sectors, at French, European and world level.
A major exporter, this sector has a positive trade balance that has steadily improved in recent years, with leading companies appearing in the international top ten.
This high-tech sector contributes to our food sovereignty and is also promising for the future to promote safer farming in terms of health, respectful of the environment and the welfare of both animals and breeders. Jean-Luc Chauvel and Louis Perrault, respectively chairman and vice-chairman of FranceAgriMer’s “Animal genetic resources” inter-sector thematic committee, will present the challenges of animal genetics during this conference.

The finishing of suckler cows must respond to the problems of production cost, the adequacy of the products with the demand of the different markets (weight, finish, image of the production) and the availability of resources on the farm (fodder and concentrates). . This conference will take stock of the latest technical results concerning the finishing of lactating females.
The results will be illustrated by technical and / or professional testimonials.
In France, the number of slaughterhouses has decreased considerably over the past 20 years. As a result, many breeders can no longer find local slaughterhouses and are forced to transport their animals over great distances, causing stress, overwork and financial costs.
On the other hand, consumers are increasingly demanding on the conditions of slaughter. From the testimonies of a former slaughterhouse manager and trainer in a peasant slaughterhouse project, of peasants invested in projects or in reflection and committed amapiens, we will try to collectively see what we can initiate to respond to these issues.
