In about 10 villages, GBDC team supports breeders in different ways:
• Farm diagnosis and consultations on 4 themes: animal health and reproduction, fodder production and feed, livestock buildings, quality and dairy processing.
• Animation of groups: trainings, study trips, support for group projects (joint purchasing, collective facilities).
• Supporting dairies in milk collection and cheese processing.
• Supporting professional structuring: leaders’ training, monitoring and relations with local authorities.
Ertoba association and GBDC benefit from the support of Fert and missions from French partners (Savencia Ressources Laitières, BTPL).
