Abstract

The aim of this study was to study the dietary practice of dairy cows on the ARTINE farm. It was carried out from 05 July to 20 November 2017. It involved 128 cows out of a total of 382 cows (a survey rate of 33.51%). It was conducted by survey using a semi-open questionnaire. The information collected was processed using the SPSS software. The cows are on natural curses (79%). The health status of the majority of cows was satisfactory (87.5%). Average milk yield was 5.46 ± 1.69 liters per cow a day with a frequency of two milkings a day (89.9%). The majority of milk produced was self-consumed in the farm (89%). The lack of technical management of dairy farming, the absence of food calendar and organization on the farm, constituted the major constraints to proper development of milk production.
