Summary

The prevailing part (at least more than 50%) of the feed should come from the farm unit itself or be produced in co-operation with other organic farms in the region.(5.6.2)

Difference

Whereas the IFOAM limits the purchase of organic fodder by defined limits the EU Regulation 2092/91 states 50% of fodder that should be grown on farm (not mandatory).

Justification

Fodder production and nutrients on farm should be in balance.
