Pig farm models in France

IFIP - Institut du porc Rennes - Le Rheu - LE RHEU - 2019

Recent evolutions will be studied (since the 2007 price spike) in the structure of pig farms: which models are being set up (degree of specialization, size, number of production sites, activity…)? For what reasons, and how (steps, financing)? And what are the technical and economics results? Two complementary approaches will be used: a quantitative evaluation of the changes (trajectories) from the agricultural surveys carried out in 2000 and 2010 (“Recensement Agricole –RA- 2000 et 2010”) and structure surveys (“Enquêtes structure”) carried out in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2013; and from a qualitative evaluation through interviews of those partaking in the pig production sector (groups, inter-branch decision makers, banks, farmers)
