Animal-adjusted breeding

Animals bred and maintained at an agricultural holding must be bred so that their biological needs are satisfied, their physical functions and behaviour not disturbed and their adaptation capacity not exceeded. Feeding, care and accommodation are suitable, if they fulfil physiological, ethological and other needs of domestic animals. Animals must be fed according to the methods suitable for an individual animal species, and the appropriate care and accommodation in breeding facilities must be provided. Forced feeding of domestic animals is allowed, if it is needed for their survival or medical reasons.
