Summary

content:
Part A: Breeding for animal health and welfare in organic livestock systems
Part B: Feeding for animal health and welfare in organic livestock systems
Part C: Posters and additional papers
The theme of the 4 th NAHWOA Workshop was Breeding and feeding for animal health and welfare in organic livestock systems . According to most organic certification body standards and the current EU legislation, breeding and feeding are the two cornerstones of health and welfare in organic livestock systems. It is apparent form these proceedings that the concept of organic breeds or organic breeding is far from clear and that a lot of work needs to be carried out before 2005, when the current EU derogation allowing sourcing of livestock from conventional breeding systems to organic systems runs out. Similarly, the requirement to feed 100% organic feedstuffs from 2004 onwards makes heavy demands on the development of organic rations for monogastric livestock in particular. These proceedings show that a substantial amount of work is already being carried out to satisfy these requirements, and that some encouraging results are already there.
In addition to the thematic papers, these Proceedings also include a paper by Kat Bazeley et al., presented at the third NAHWOA workshop in France in October 2000. Due to an editorial error this paper was left out form the appropriate proceedings. We would like to apologise for this and hope that those who have searched for this reference in the past will now be able to locate it. Also, abstracts of three posters presented both in Wageningen are presented.
