Coordinators livestock farming

Coordinators are the first point of contact for livestock farmers and livestock transporters in the QS scheme. They act as the link in the chain between the businesses they coordinate and QS. Coordinators actively support agricultural businesses and livestock transporters: They advise them on all questions concerning the QS scheme, maintain the master data in the QS database and arrange for independent inspections. The coordinators also support the livestock owners in their participation in the various monitoring programmes of QS.

The coordinators also act as contact persons for farmers who use the service packages for crop farming, grassland management or forage production in the QS scheme.
