Introduction

One of the four main pillars of the Cadre Stratégique de Lutte contre la Pauvreté au Burkina Faso (Battle against poverty in Burkina Faso) consists of increasing the chances to get work and to develop activities to increase income for the vulnerable population. To the realization of this aim the government recommends:

•  The intensification and modernization of agriculture and livestock farming;
•  The increase and diversification of income of the population.
With in view the professionalizing of the agriculture and cattle breeding, the authorities promote also the classic production methods (..., dairy farms, etc.), while mixed farms are very productive, adapt themselves well to the ecosystem, and control the natural sources better.

The project of a mixed farm is an initiative that fits in this dynamic; the farm starts with livestock farming (chickens, turkeys, goats, sheep, pigs, bullocks, etc.) and integrates progressively with the production of plants (fruit, corn, vegetables, water hyacinth, etc.), and fish farming.

The integration ends with the installation of a production unit of biogas. That's how at the end you get a farm where the integration of the system makes it possible to produce a part of the necessary foodstuffs and energy for the development of the livestock farming.
The operational management of the farm school is based on the "power of the triangle system" of which the secret lays in the mutual supplementation of the three production domains: Fish farming, Agriculture and Livestock farming. Nothing is going to waste, everything will be used.

 

In a nutshell:

The global objective is to create a farm school that develops a reliable and cheap production system, based on agro-biology and integrating Agriculture, Livestock farming and Fish farming in Burkina Faso, by using the local resources en diminish the production costs by emphasizing the potential synergy between the different production sectors and benefit from them.
