Summary

On average, up to 20 % of the feed formula of rations may comprise in-conversion feedstuff.

Difference

Nature et Progres standards allow 20 % of in-conversion feedingstuff in the annual ration of organic livestock whereas EU Regulation 2092/91 allows 30 % of in-conversion feedstuff (up to 60 % if coming from a unit of the own holding).

Justification

The use of a too large amount of in-conversion feedstuff in rations could prevent organic feedstuff, widely available in France, to be used.
