Summary

In France, the percentage of non organic feed in the annual ration of herbivores is calculated separately for roughage and for concentrates.

Difference

French regulation specifies that the percentage of non organic feed materials must be calculated separately for roughage and concentrates, whereas EU Regulation 2092/91 does not require this.

Justification

The aim is to avoid all the concentrates in the herbivore ration being non organic.
