Simultaneous non-organic extensive livestock is under certain restrictions accepted (compliance with good farming practices with regard to fertilisation, or different species of livestock, provided that they are not reared in an industrial method of production, or buildings and parcels are physically and functionally separated from buildings and parcels in which livestock are not reared in accordance with SI Rules). (Art. 18)


SI Rules 2003 (Art. 18) describe the technical requirements for simultanious organic/conventional livestock production and do not describe the principles as those listed in the EU Regulation 2092/91 Annex I B 1.1. ? 1.4. The other provisions regarding the conditions for not-organic livestock on the same holding are the same as in EU Regulation Annex I B (1.5. ? 1.8.).


The authors of the SI Rules wanted to be very practical and focus on the technical provisions while leaving aside the explanation of organic livestock rearing principles.
