Summary

PRO-BIO Standards lists methods which cannot be used (throat frames, stretch chains, belts) for animal tethering. (PB Standards Sec. II, Chap. 3, Part 3.3)

Difference

EU Regulation 2092/91 Annex I/B (6) does not specify methods, which can or cannot be used to tether the livestock. PRO-BIO is more detailed as it specifies the methods which are permitted.

Justification

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