UK: New standards for organic livestock production
It has been know for some time now that organic livestock production standards would be revised following the publication and adoption of new European Union regulations on organic livestock. The new standards were adopted in the United Kingdom on 24 August, 2000. This will result in some changes for organic producers in Northern Ireland. Because of these changes, anyone interested in converting to organic production should find out about the implications of the revised standards. Whilst we might often expect new standards to mean a tightening of the requirements this is not always the case. Some of the modifications will make it a little easier to meet the new organic standards. A few of the topics addressed by the standards are summarised briefly and will be discussed fully at meetings during November.
