Summary

Organic farming is widely regarded as an animal-friendly husbandry with benefits for animal health. However, there is only little information available on the situation in real life: is organic agriculture more welfare-friendly than its conventional counterpart?? Our systematic literature review showed that organic farming has potential to achieve good welfare states (e.g. regarding lameness). Moreover it may not be beneficial if it coincides with less than optimal management (e.g. regarding pasture parasites).  Outcome-based assessments should therefore be implemented in organic standards in order to consider and safeguard the health-related aspects of animal welfare.
