Germany: requirements for German dairy farms that produce hay milk

German dairy farms that produce hay milk and will market this under the official hay milk logo of Austrian origin now have the meet the same requirements as Austrian producers of hay milk. Hay milk comes from cows that among others in winter get traditional (dry) hay, in summer they are on pasture. So far the German hay milk producers had only to meet the EU regulations but now they have to meet the stronger official Austrian hay milk regulations. This means among others that year round it is not allowed to feed silage to cows, that in cubicle barns every cows has to have a cubicle available, and that the cows at least 120 days a year have to have entrance to pasture.
