Between production disease, communicable disease, individual and collective decision.

Context and Issues

  • Risk management and sharing for disease control in livestock


  • Analysis of communicable disease control decisions at the farmer and collective scales:
    • Attitude with regard to risk,
    • Epidemiological / economic dynamics in time and space,
    • Management externalities and strategic behaviors,
    • Asymmetries and information sharing.
  • Production Diseases & Individual Decisions:
    • Rationality of control actions - heterogeneity of behaviors and cognitive biases,
    • Conduct of change - Trajectories of demedication in livestock and in sectors.
  • Production Diseases & Collective Decisions:
    • Animal health seen as a quality element in the value chain - Transactions,
    • Use of antibiotics - Longitudinal follow-up of cumulative treatments.      

Target species

  • Cattle
  • Pigs

Application fields
