Fodder basis

The fodder basis which includes processed or produced fodder must be maintained and exploited according to the sustainability principle. A holder of animals must provide them with appropriate quality and quantity of suitable fodder and the appropriate method of feeding and watering to preserve health and fulfil ethological needs of feeding. Equipment for watering and feeding must be formed, built and installed so that it prevents water and fodder contamination and that the damages due to jostling of animals for water and fodder are minimal. Animals must have permanent access to an appropriate water source or they must be enabled access to feeding in another manner in time intervals that apply to their physiological needs.
