The study was carried out in sedentary cattle farms in the Denguele, District in the North-West of Côte d'Ivoire, the objective of which is to determine the constraints to development in order to propose solutions. A survey was conducted among cattle farmers using the convenience method because of their accessibility. These breeders had a low level of education and were 60% Ivorian. Cattle breeding was the main activity of 47% of breeders. The size of the sedentary herds varied from 30 to more than 100 heads, of which 50% of the farms were between 50 and 99 heads. Comparison of technical data on herd size was found to be significant between farms (p < 0.05). The cattle breeds were made up of N'dama and Baoulé with a high rate of interbreeding (51%) between these and the Sahelian zebus. Indeed, the sedentary breeding of cattle was practiced for the purpose of building up savings, a source of income and subsistence breeding. Unfortunately, he was confronted with several constraints: animal pathologies, low food resources, problems of management of natural pastures and cattle production techniques.
