Summary

Only pigs which are resistant to stress (with proved NN status) may be used for breeding piglets. This must be recorded and proved.

Difference

The BA Special Market Rules 2006 are more detailed than the EU Regulation. EU Regulation 2092/91 point 3.1 of annex I B has only a general statement that for intensive livestock breeds with typical diseases or health problems (e.g. stress-syndrome) should be avoided.

Justification

The main reason for the rule is a better quality assurance to create high confidence by consumers.

EU Regulation
