Summary

Organic food production is developing rapidly in Europe and other parts of the world. An important principle in organic production is “to provide living conditions that allow animals to express the basic aspects of their innate behaviour” (IFOAM, 2002). This principle is accentuated in the European regulations on organic production as “the livestock shall have permanent access to open air areas, preferable pasture” (EC No 834/2007).
