Summary

content:
Part A: Livestock in organic farming: role and research methodologies
Part B: The diversity of organic livestock systems – Austria and Spain
Part C: Organic livestock production standards
Part D: Organic livestock production and animal welfare
The theme of the 2nd NAHWOA Workshop was "Diversity of livestock systems and definition of animal welfare". The diversity of livestock systems within the European Conmmunity area has become particularly clear during the development of the common organic livestock production standards, in the form of EU Regulation 1804/ 1999. The Workshop heard several interesting papers on the subject, including an account of first-hand, field visit experience of the DEHESA farming system and of an olive farm with mixed livestock systems to utilise the by-products. In addition to a lively discussion during a session in the Workshop, the NAHWOA Working Group on organic standard development had a meeting to discuss the issue. These Proceedings include a combined report of all these discussions. This report is also submitted to the European Commission as an official NAHWOA statement on the present state of development of EU Regulation 1804/1999.
