The SCAECC : an agricultural COOP created after the disengagement of the state
The success of breeding AQPS (non-thoroughbred horses) in the Nièvre comes from an old partnership between breeders and the French National Studs who have always sent thoroughbred stallions of quality to the « stallion station »* of Cercy.
* In The past, the National Studs in France used to send stallions for the breeding season to areas that were far away from the National Studs to allow breeders access to quality stallions. The locations where they sent the stallions were called « Stallion station ». In the nineteen twenties, the local breeders from Burgundy took the initiative to create a stallion station at Cercy.
