Razafindrafara Mirantsoa Suzanne, Andriatsimahavandy Abel, Koko and Maminiaina Olivier Fridolin

Poultry farming plays an important nutritional and economic role in developing countries. The purpose of this study is to provide an overview of domestic poultry production in Madagascar. The composition and distribution of livestock, the husbandry practices adopted by farmers and the limitations of the poultry system are discussed. It was found that the majority of the livestock is composed of chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys of various indigenous breeds. Then, a predominance of the traditional type of breeding is observed. Finally, the existence of constraints (sanitary and husbandry) limits the development of the sector. Thus, various support actions along the value chain will be necessary to improve the Malagasy poultry sector
