Summary

PRO-BIO Standards do not allow dehorning by cauterizing.(PB Standards: Sec. II, Chapter 3, Part 4)

Difference

PRO-BIO Standards are more detailed as they prohibit a specific method. EU Regulation 2092/91 does not specify the methods of dehorning. Annex I/B: 6.1.2. names only the reasons and conditions for such operations.

Justification

Ethically non-acceptable methods may not be used in organic farming according PRO-BIO Standards.
