Abstract


The present study is conducted throughout four traditional farms in central Algeria. The research revealed a series of failures on the management of the pipe. Thus, some of these deficiency are due to a sub watering equipment (1.8 cm vs 2.5 cm / animal), a static ventilation, added to its difficulty to control, and finally its overcrowding phase (12 Vs 10 sujets/m2), the conversion ratios exceeding standards required is (2.5 vs. 1.8) and, especially mortality rates that range between 3.5 and 7% (norm <3%), are among the most notable causes. Finally, the production index, which is the resultant of all the zoo technical parameters, varies in a wide range (142 to 290) compared to the minimum allowable value of appreciatively (> 220).
