Abstract This paper evaluates the impact of legume forages and cottonseed meal on dairy cow productivity during the dry season and identifies, with farmer participation, the advantages and disadvantages of widespread planting of forage crops. It is based on a study of 67 Méré cows divided into three groups: control group (32), improved ration (24) and housed cows (11). Average production for dairy cows in holdings, improved rations and the control group were 1.5, 0.85 and 0.44 litres per day-¹ respectively. Large farms seemed favourable to forage production and cow supplementation
