Summary

Slatted floors and grid constructions are prohibited.

Difference

Nature et Progres standards prohibit the use of slatted floors and grid constructions, whereas EU Regulation 2092/91 allows a proportion of slatted floors for every species to a maximum of 50% for herbivores and to 66 % for poultry.

Justification

Slatted and grid constructions are not good for animal welfare and generate highly concentrated manures, which are potentially polluting for soils and waters.
