The results of the official feed control programme in Bavaria between 1997 and 2002 document that the proportion of ruminant feedstuffs that was cross-contaminated with animal material was distinctively reduced after the comprehensive feed ban since 2001, and decreased close to zero in 2002. The results underline the high efficiency of the comprehensive feed ban. It also indicate risks of a potential re-admittance of animal protein for nonruminant domestics under the momentary production procedures.
