Are you “a small dairy farmer”?

25th April 2017

No, this is not to do with stature, but whether or not your cows produced less than 1,000,000 litres of milk in the year to 31st March 2016. If this is the case and you are still in milk production, a small dairy farmer grant scheme is available to you. This is a one-off payment from the EU - the actual value of which will be dependent on the number of applicants.

Forms are now available from the Rural Payments Agency or this office and must be returned by 31st May 2017. If you believe you may be eligible and would like some assistance, do please contact this office. All that we will require is proof of total milk deliveries for the relevant period.

For further information, please contact one of the agricultural team.
