Summary

Ecological aspects have to be considered in the construction and maintenance of livestock housing. Materials and substances harmful to health or the environment should not be used and native materials must be preferred. The use of non-renewable energy should be reduced. (Bioland production standards, 4.2 Requirements in the Keeping of Animals, 4.2.1 General, 4.2.1.6 Construction and Maintenance of Livestock Buildings)

Difference

The BIOLAND standard is more detailled. The EU Regulation 2092/91 does not refer to the ecological aspects of the construction of livestock housing

Justification

To cope with the ecological principle of organic farming and avoid contamination.
