Germany: Naturland limits the use of concentrates of feed compounds for dairy cows

Dairy farms in Germany and in other countries that are members of the international organic association Naturland will from 2024 only be allowed to use half the amount of feed compounds that compete with human food than would be permitted under EU organic regulations. Naturland which is founded in Germany but active in 60 countries worldwide, limits the use of concentrates for dairy cows to a maximum of 20 percent of the annual ration. The only exception to this are animal feeds that emphatically do not compete with human food, for example spent grains. The upper limit of 40 percent set in the EU organic regulation still applies to them. According to the organic association, avoiding food competition increases the sustainability and climate-friendliness of dairy farming.
