Cheese documentation summary (DFR)

Since 1988, each subscriber receives 100 sheets per subscription (delivered over approximately 24 months) summarizing, in French, several hundreds of scientific articles published in major peer-reviewed journals. Clear and simple, these sheets highlight the results of interest to the dairy profession and include critical views from cheese technologists (“the cheesemaker’s point of view”). It is today a major body of over 1800 sheets for technologists and scientists who wish to improve the cheese industry.


Documents from the Caprine Resources and Documentation Centre (CRDC)

The mission of this service is to gather and make available to the stakeholders in the caprine sector the technical and scientific documents necessary for their activity.

In addition to its abundant library of 18 000 documents, the CRDC, based in Surgères, manages three specialist websites:

  • www.crdc.fr is an information portal dedicated to the Caprine sector. Free online access to previous editions of L’égide (scientific and technical newsletter).
  • www.goat-lib.com is a database with free online access. This database references national and international scientific and technical reports, theses, books and publications in the dairy and caprine sector.
  • www.ladocumentationcaprine.net presents technical and scientific articles considered as indispensable by the 4 institutions that instigated this initiative: CRDC, INRA/INA-PG, Institut de l’Elevage, CIRVAL.


Publication of works for professionals in the caprine sector

The CRDC has been publishing works since 1995, mainly proceedings from caprine conferences, which are now reference works.
