Systèmes d'Élevage Durables

SYSED Research Activities

Sustainable development is now a societal priority. The livestock sector, which is globally expanding, is particularly concerned by this issue. Livestock production chains need to remain economically viable, while meeting environmental challenges related to land use, pollution, reduction of natural resources, loss of biodiversity and competition with food while respecting societal demand for healthy foods whose production preserves the animal welfare.
In this context the SYSED team develop research program for the design of more sustainable farming systems for two different species: rabbits and waterfowl for foie gras (duck and goose). Our objective is to contribute to the emergence of practices and systems that combine economic, social and environmental performance.
