Full text not available from this repository.
The amount of animals of each livestock species brought in from a conventional farm unit to establish or replenish the herd or flock of the organic farm may be permitted up to a maximum of 10% of the average annual size of the basic herd/flock. (KEZ Standards, Part 2, 8.2)
Based on the fourth derogation of EU Regulation 2092/91 Annex I/B 3.4 the percentages for each livestock species are defined . These percentages may be increased in special cases, up to 40 %, following the opinion and agreement of the inspection authority or body. Under KEZ standards there are no exceptions allowed; only 10% brought in animals in any case.
The standard-setting body could not give a justification.
