Abstract
In rural area of Burkina Faso, health management of domestic animals is a constant concern for low-income farmers. In this context, an ethno-veterinary survey was conducted among 62 farmers of ruminant in the pastoral area of Gaongho in Bazèga province to understand the rearing practice, to identify the main constraints of and the practices used against African trypanosomosis. For this, data were collected between March to June 2014 using a structured questionnaire and analyzed by descriptive statistics such as mean, frequency and percentages. The results showed that respondents were 48.3% literate and mainly of Fulani ethnic with an average age of 45 years. The main constraints of ruminant rearing for farmers are diseases (86.2%), particularly African Animal Trypanosomosis which is the most dominant (96.7%). To control this pathology, farmers practice modern (100%) and traditional (35.4%) medicine. Seventeen traditional herbal remedies are used to control trypanosomosis of ruminants in the area. Their modes of preparation and administration to ruminants are described according to surveyed farmers.
