Besides, the Tunisian government makes some breeding a priority sector with the recent adoption of a strategic plan of development for the horizon 2020. For that purpose, many technical problems (health, nutrition, rangeland degradation, access to water, mass selection, etc.) are to be treated first and foremost by the government. The question of the technical advice is also essential.
However, when the production increases, problems of marketing remain significant. At this stage, the sector is very poorly organized:
- The breeder sells an animal to a butcher at the latter’s request
- The milk is collected only since recently. Previously, he only acted as medicine. Certain breedings turn gradually to this production even if no channel of marketing still exists. Only some informal “short circuits” are set up: for example, a breeder contractualizes a small volume with a pastry. No system of collection or pasteurization being ready in this region, the milk is believed and thus little marketable except the zone.
