MONTAGNE VERSUS HAUTE MONTAGNE : LES RECOMPOSITIONS TERRITORIALES DU PASTORALISME ARIÉGEOIS

Abstract : In the Pyrenees of the Ariège French département, the restructuration of mountain cattle breeding and pastoralism is at the origin of a deep alteration of the relations that cattle farmers maintain with the altitude territories. Cleavage continues to widen between the fragility of cattle breeding in high mountain zones and the dynamism of cattle breeding of simple mountain zones. In this context, the pastoral revival allowed the appearance of a true proximity transhumance between pre-Pyrenean zones and altitude territories, distant from the traditional system of place organization in the high valleys, linked up to the practice of mountain summer pasture. In this new model, cattle farmers rather envision altitude pastures as an auxiliary resource, an economical opportunity favouring enlargement, while mountain summer pasture remains the organizing principle of cattle breeding in high mountain.
