The steps leading to animal husbandry labelling

The steps leading to labelling for market players

Animal husbandry labelling is carried out in several steps. The aim is to keep the amount of work for livestock farms as low as possible. For this reason, information that has already been made available to the authorities will not have to be provided again. This also applies to records that already have to be kept as a result of other legal requirements. New animal husbandry requirements will not affect the validity of the label. German establishments follow a different labelling procedure from foreign establishments.
