Summary

Organic farming systems are supposed to be welfare friendly and beneficial to health. However, there is only little information available about the situation in real life: Is organic more welfare friendly than conventional agriculture? Our systematic literature review showed that organic farming has potential to achieve good welfare states (e.g. regarding lameness). However, together with less than optimal management (e.g. regarding pasture parasites) it may not be beneficial. Outcome-based assessments should therefore be implemented in organic standards in order to consider and safeguard the health-related aspects of animal welfare.
