Summary

Tethering of cattle is possible during winter time in buildings which already existed before 24 August 2000, until 31st December 2010 and in small farms, provided that regular exercise is provided and rearing takes place in line with animal welfare requirements with comfortably littered areas as well as individual management.

Difference

The French regulation limits the tethering of cattle to the winter season, whereas in the EU Regulation 2092/91 this is not specified.

Justification

There is no reason to tether cattle indoors when weather conditions allow them to go out.
