Legislation query

Seasons Greetings.

Would anyone be able to clarify the legal position on tail docking and castration of lambs in the following countries and which local laws cover this in those countries? My searches have been fruitless.

a.) Belgium

b.) Italy


Many thanks


Emily, sorry for my late response! Just saw the post.

I was working on this topic for a couple of years ago.

As far as I am aware, there is no special law regarding tail docking in Italy. In my experience all Southern European countries just following the EU recommendation. Do you have them?

No idea about Belgium. But maybe you could ask Wim Govaerts. Unfortuenately, I do not have any contact details from him but maybe you could find him with google. Wim is an excellant Belgium advicer for Dairy Goats Nutrition and he has done some workshops and farm visitis in Germany.

I guess, the Republic of Ireland should have an code of conduct of animal welfare. For our publication, we just googled it.

Hope I could help. Just let me know if you need more information. I am very happy to help!
