This technical paper aims to contribute to the construction of ethnographical references about animal husbandry practices, mainly for archaeologists. It results from a collaboration between breeders and scientists, during the round table at Penne-du-Tarn ("Cultivations and animal husbandry from mountains to the plain tails"; May 2004). The example concerns a flock of 180 to 200 lambs producing ewes, bred according to the standards of biological agriculture. The 32 ha soil is ranged between the Pech Egos mountain and the valley. Authors emphasize the variability of the practices through the year and from one year to the other.
