Les progrès du contrôle laitier en Quercy, Albigeois et Rouergue

By Guy Mergoil

Abstract

Dairy farming and milk control progress in South-western France. — Introduced since 1936 around Montauban (Tarn-et-Garonne), milk control gradually spread out into the neighbouring areas after the second world war but the decisive steps were taken only ten years ago. The controls remain the pride of a minority of farmers, restricted and limited to areas with a very old tradition of milk production (Montagne Noire and Montalbanais). Such controls are developing faster in areas which have come more recently to milk (Segalas of Aveyron and Lot). In the region as a whole, milk controls have speeded up the success of the Frisonne breed of cows and established their superiority.Dairy farming and milk control progress in South-western France. — Introduced since 1936 around Montauban (Tarn-et-Garonne), milk control gradually spread out into the neighbouring areas after the second world war but the decisive steps were taken only ten years ago.
