In Europe in 2022 organic dairy farmers will face new regulations. Among others the convert period for land will be extended to two years. Starting 2023 70 percent instead of the current 60 percent of the feed has to have a ‘regional’ origin. However: the whole EU is seen as regional. For milk powder and milk replacers it is no longer allowed that they contain chemical compositions or vegetable compositions. Buying regular cattle to add to the herd is only allowed when there is no organic cattle available. This has to be proven by a database. Only for individual animals for specific individual reasons a permit is possible to dehorn.
