Around 7,400 cattle farmers, 1,850 pig farmers and 470 broiler chicken and turkey farmers take part in the AMA Quality Seal programme.
The AMA guidelines contain detailed rules on feeding. Feedstuffs need to be certified with pastus+. Feedstuffs of animal origin or leftovers are not allowed to be fed to ruminants, for example. Medicines may only be used if a vet has prescribed them and they may not be used preventatively. Moreover, after antibiotics have been administered, double the legally prescribed waiting time applies for the AMA Quality Seal, before the animals can be sold.
