About 87% of these cattle are kept in countries of the EU-15 (West-Europe). 43%. ○ ○ Cattle Production with a Special Reference to Western Europe (EU-15) ○ ○ ○ found on the paternal side. Regulations connected with environment protection that are cited in the following chapters, are becoming a limiting factor for large farms. Milk quotas are a limiting factor in dairy cow breeding. Intensive production forces producers to operate along modern technological lines; technologies similar to those applied in intensive systems on the North American continent (TMR feeding, loose housing, and high-throughput milking parlours) are in use.

If the virus adapts itself to humanto human transmission, millions of lives may be threatened. The WHO estimates that millions of people could die of HPAI, should a human pandemic occur. The main measures to prevent, control and eradicate HPAI are: • Efficient disease surveillance for early detection and reporting of outbreaks. • Enhanced biosecuity of poultry farms and associated premises. • Control of movement of birds and products that may contain virus, including controls at the interface of infected and uninfected areas.

Animals, predominantly of local dual-purpose breeds, are kept at the houses. They are mostly mixed farms, with the production of milk, meat and eggs. Hay and grazing are generally used to feed ruminants. They are milked by hand or with simple milking equipment. Pigs and poultry are fed predominantly with surplus food from the kitchen. During the summer period, in a number of regions, animals are grazed together and stay out during the whole grazing season (sheep) or between the morning and evening milking (cattle).
