Summary

Prophylactic teat dipping with chemical or synthetic substances is forbidden. (BA-Rules 2006 chapter 3.5.9)

Difference

The Bio Austria General Standard is more detailed, as EU Regulation 2092/91 does not mention dipping. However EU does not allow prophylactical treatment with chemically synthesised allopathic vetenary medicinal products.

Justification

Prophylactic teat dipping with chemical or synthetic substances places selection pressure on the symbiotic flora of the teat, possibly leading to the development of resistant micro-organisms. Residues of these substances can also remain on the teats.
