Rahmann, Gerold (2002) On farm organic dairy sheep and goat breeding in Germany. In: Proceeding of the 14th IFOAM Organic World Congress, p. 94.
In the period from 1992 to 1998 the fat and protein yield of both flocks could be increased. A specific breeding strategy had an important contribution to the increase but the environmental impacts on animal productivity is enormous (e.g. the very wet summer season 1994). A wrong decision in breeding bucks (dairy sheep in 1992-1994) had an negative effect on the productivity.
