DEFRA has announced a new hardship fund for English dairy farmers to assist with the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.
Eligible dairy farmers who have lost more than 25% of their income over April and May due to Coronavirus disruptions will be eligible to access up to £10,000 of funding, with no cap set on the number of farmers who can receive this support or on the total funding available.
More detail on the fund including when and how it will be distributed are to be issued ‘in due course’.
