Summary

Conventional feed of animal origin is not allowed to be fed to ruminants, but may be fed to pigs and chickens. For ruminants, organic by-products from milk processing such as whey and skim milk may be used (KRAV standards paragraph 5.3.12).

Difference

There are no restrictions on the use of conventional feed of animal origin to ruminants in EU Regulation 2092/91. There are restrictions on the type of conventional feedstuff of animal origin but there is no requirement that any should be organic.

Justification

Ruminants do not naturally eat fish and should therefore not be feed with fish products.
