Technical mission to the Laiterie du Berger in Richard Toll
As part of the agreement between the Laiterie du Berger, the In Vivo Foundation and AVe, Jean Paul and Gilbert, AVe experts, carried out a technical mission to Richard Toll (Senegal) in January 2019. During the previous AVe mission in May 2018, Daniel and Louis, following their diagnosis, had indicated that the most effective lever to increase milk production was the cow's feed in the dairy collection area. These cows, zebu breed, produced 1 to 2 liters of milk per day. By improving feed, this production can be doubled. As the collection area is located near an irrigated area (development of the Senegal river) with a major sugar cane plantation (17,000 ha), the idea is to use two sugar cane by-products to feed cows : mooring lines (the end of sugar cane straws) left on the plot and molasses, a by-product of the cane refinery.
