Organic livestock farming: potential and limitations of husbandry practice to secure animal health and welfare and food quality.

At the moment, Switzerland has about 6,500 organic farmers, with 11 % of the agriculture area managed organically. The main regulations in organic farming are The Schweizer Bio-Verordnung (Swiss Government Regulation for Organic farming). These regulations are increasingly adapted to the EU-Regulation for organic farming. The BIO SUISSE regulation has further requirements. Nearly all organic farmers are BIO SUISSE farmers. The symbol of BIO SUISSE is a bud.
