Summary

In France, it is forbidden to alternate organic and non organic livestock in the same building or open air run, except during the initial introduction of organic livestock.

Difference

French regulation forbids alternating organic and non organic livestock in the same building or open-air run whereas EU Regulation 2092/91 does not cover this topic.

Justification

Alternate organically and conventionally managed livestock in the same building is inconsistent (why give organic treatment to one animal and not to another?), and is detrimental to the credibility of the organic market. Moreover, there could be a pollution of the open-air runs with antibiotics.
