Summary

When milk which has been held back as a result of treatment with antibiotics or chemically-synthesised veterinary medicine, cannot be used as feed for organic animals before the fifth day following the treatment. Feeding milk which has been kept back after this period is considered as organic feed portion. From 1 month before slaughter, no animals must be fed with milk that has been held back.

Difference

EU Regulation 2092/91 has no details on this specific area, what has to be done with milk when animals have been treated with antibiotics

Justification

The EU regulation 2092/91 has no details on this specific area, and farmers were asking for clarification.
