Summary

All animals should have free access to roughage. In the diet for ruminants reared for meat there may be maximum 30% concentrate. For dairy animals there may be maximum 40% concentrate except for the first three months in lactation when it may be 50%. (KRAV standards paragraph 5.3.10 and 5.3.11).

Difference

In EU Regulation 2092/91 Annex 1 paragraph 4.7 it is required that 60% of the feed for herbivores is roughage. This can be reduced to 50% for dairy animals during three months early in the lactation. Paragraph 4.11 requires that roughage shall be added to the daily diet for pigs and poultry. The KRAV standards require free access to roughage.
