Abstract: The paper outlines the role played by several professional identities belonging to the dairy stockbreeders in Picardy region, France in redefying the social networks in these rural areas. The social capital, seen as a valuable resource for the French rural areas is developed by different local professional identities and organized itself in networks. In our case, the dairy stockbreeders are seen as one particular typology of professional identities which are redefined and transformed today. The transformation of regional and global context determines these networks to position themselves differently at local level.
