The study was carried out at the Mahwa station located in Bututsi natural region in South of Burundi at 1850 m of altitude. The objective of the study was to assess the effects of days in milk, cow's calving age, type of crossbreeding, year and month of lactation, parity on daily milk yield of crossbreds Ayrshire (AY) x Sahiwal (S) x Ankole (A) cows. Milk yields were obtained from 9 cows (S) that have been both milked and suckled during the entire lactation, on 8 cows (M) only milked during the entire lactation and on 150 cows (SM) suckled before and milked after weaning. Data were analyzed using the procedure GLM in SAS for S,M, and SM cows separately. All factors affected significantly daily milk yields (P < 0.001). Least-squares means (LSM) for daily milk yields were highest at the 8th (7.16 +/- 0.07 1), 8th (7.63 +/- 0.35 1), and 7th (7.34 +/- 0.39 1) day in milk for SM, S and M lactations, respectively. The Wood model was able to detect 2 main groups of curve shape: standard for SM and S cows and atypical decreasing for M cows. An important decrease in milk production was observed around the 120th day in SM cows corresponding to the weaning period. Crossbreeding improved milk production and highest yields were observed with 50% to 75% of Ayrshire inheritance (LSM = 5 +/- 0.05 to 5.51 +/- 0.02 1/day). A significant increase was observed from 1977 to 1992 due to the improvement of genetic and management techniques. During this period, LSM raised from 1.26 +/- 0.11 1 to 4.74 +/- 0.03 1 per day for SM cows. Unfortunately, the 1993 civilian war destabilized the managerial techniques and consequently, the milk production decreased in Mahwa station, In all cows, milk production was significantly higher from December to May (LSM - 3.96 +/- 0.03 1/day) during the rainy season than in September (LSM = 3.12 +/- 0.03 1/day) at the end of the dry season.

The gorilla sanctuary of Lossi experiments the synergy between scientific research and nature conservation. Three partners are involved in a management participative process. These partners include the Republic of Congo, the local community of Lossi and the European programme on the forest ecosystems in Central Africa. An investigation was carried out on the sanctuary of Lossi in 2003, in order to study in situ the effects generated by the participative management and to identify the constraints linked to the participative approach. The work of primatologists allowed the habituation of the gorillas to the human presence and opened eyesight tourism of western lowland gorillas. A camp for tourists and the access road to the sanctuary have been constructed. The tourism generated jobs in favour of the local population which is also a take-partner of contracts on road repairing. The income from the tourism allowed the construction of a health centre. However, the works of researchers and tourism activities failed during the outbreaks of the Ebola hemorrhagic fever and during the three civil war episodes. The consolidation and the long term of this process of co-management of natural resources of Lossi remains the establishment of a management that should include conservation, rural development and scientific research, with equitably in the distribution of gain between the partnerses.

This work compares two dramatically different types of wildlife management in Senegal, a country threatened by poaching and deforestation : the first concerns the management of the Niokolo Koba National Park, by a public utility service and the second, the management of the Bandia Reserve, a fenced area which surface is more than thousand times lower, by private investors. In order to do this comparison, the structure, type of management, evolution of flora and fauna, and management problems encountered for each protected area are analysed. This comparison allows to formulate some recommendations for a sustainable management of Senegalese wildlife. [less ▲]

Cet article a relaté la situation de l’élevage des ruminants à travers la production, la consommation et la commercialisation de viande en Afrique subsaharienne au cours de ces trois dernières décennies. Il faut signaler que l’élevage des ovins représente particulièrement l’un des secteurs d’activité importants dans les milieux ruraux, puisqu’il nécessite peu d’investissements et les conditions de commercialisation des ovins sont très souples par rapport aux bovins pour couvrir les besoins financiers ponctuels de l’éleveur. Au Bénin, malgré la rusticité et la trypanotolérance des ovins Djallonké, un certain nombre de contraintes font que leur niveau de production est resté faible par rapport à la moyenne de l’Afrique subsaharienne. Pour optimiser la production ovine dans ce pays, l’une des priorités à la mise en place des schémas d’amélioration génétique, serait entre autre, l’estimation des facteurs influençant la croissance et la reproduction des ovins Djallonké, deux caractères intimement liés à la production de viande.
