INVENTORY AND DEVELOPMENT PERSPECTIVE OF MILK PRODUCTION IN SAHARAN AREA: THE CASE OF THE GHARDAÏA REGION (ALGERIA)

By H. BENSAHA, R MAYOUF and L BENSAHA

Abstract

The National Fund for the Development of Agricultural Investments (FNDIA) supports various actions, including the dairy industry (mini-dairy, production and birth bonuses, milk collection, processing and artificial insemination). At the level of the Ghardaïa region, like the other Saharan regions, FNDIA helped initiate the development of livestock and thereby contributed to the increase in the number of head of cattle. The establishments of nurseries and of specialized dairy barns have created a dynamic in the dairy cattle farming and have positive impacts on the local market, namely an increase in the production of milk. According to the Directorate of Agricultural Services (DSA) of the Wilaya of Ghardaia (2010), the number of imported dairy cattle between 1995 and 2010 rose from 177 to 1688 dairy cows owned by the private sector. 13 400 liters of milk are collected daily by dairies and milk collection points. In this context, the objective of this research is to develop an inventory of the dairy industry in Ghardaia and identify its strengths and weaknesses in order to propose solutions to ensure its sustainability and thus provide guidance to the strong investment by government
