Summary

At least 50% of the feed must originate on the farm itself or in cooperation with another Demeter farm. (DI production standards, 5.5. Feeding; DI production standards, Appendix 7, APP 12)

Difference

Demeter requires 50% home-grown feed for any kind of animal. The EU Regulation 2092/91 requires this only for herbivores.

Justification

To strive for a circular flow economic system and independence from outside inputs, to enhance the farm individuality
