    I currently have a grant application in. It says on agfood that its status is "ready for RASS". What does this mean can anyone tell me?

    Not so bad. At least it’s moving. I was after that tranche and can’t remember when it closes. Would like to get going by the end of the summer but sure we’ll see what happens.

    What were you applying for if you don’t mind me asking? Was it building or equipment? I have an application in for a slatted shed so just curious. Bit of a balls that they didn’t give you a reason. Is there any way to find out I wonder?

    My application is still making it's way through the system but it makes little differ now. There is no way I am spending €100k + on a shed for beef now.

    Weighing scales. Calf dehoring crate. And a grass plate meter just to get me over the 2 grand min. I'll be calling on Monday to see why I was rejected. Thought I would of hot it no problem as it was such a small amount...

    Same here..bet the big thicket items and young farmers got preference. This was my only TAMS application and will be my last. They can go f#%"*.


  • Registered Users Posts: 651 ✭✭✭badgerhowlin


    I'm young farmer. (Well 38). And 1st time applying too.

    Jeez I'm surprised that they declined that application. Like yourself, I would have thought that a relatively small amount like that would go through no problem. Mine is gone to HQ for Checking so I hope I'll hear soon enough one way or the other.
    I wonder though if a rejection for myself would be a blessing in disguise the way things are at the moment. I'll wait and see if it gets accepted first and then make a final decision on what to do next.


  • Registered Users Posts: 651 ✭✭✭badgerhowlin


    Same here but you can never tell what's going on in the departments heads....

    It's a tough time to know weather or not to invest for the future alright


  • Registered Users Posts: 651 ✭✭✭badgerhowlin


    OK i managed to talk to a lovely lady in johns town castle.
    She Explained that the cut of points for this round was 46 and i only got 30
    She told me that I actually got no points for my equipment part.

    She told me to decrease the amount by 1% on each item as this will give me 6 points each % and it will get me over the 46 points i need to be accepted in this round.

    To me this seems silly.
    I was told my my teagasc adviser that that even though my Equipment im looking for is more than what the TAMS are offering, i should only put in the tams amount.

    EG
    weighing scales
    TAMS reference cost €1164
    I can get one for €1200

    Teagasc adviser told me to put in the lesser amount.

    But the one in Johnstown castle is telling me to put in 1% lower that €1164 (€1152).

    This seems a little bit wrong.

    Can anyone confirm or deny...

    Mine had gone for HQ Checking and then a query was raised for Ineligible docs. Got a letter in the post to say that I needed to submit the drawings that had been stamped by the Council. So I just downloaded them from the Planning website and attached online to the application. Status now showing HQ Check Query Closed for the last couple of days. Will wait and see what happens next.

    Eventually some movement on my application. Has gone from HQ Query Check Closed to 'Ready for Pre-Approval'. It took well over a month for a status update. I rang a couple of times just to see if there was any issue and each time I was told that all was in order. I guess these things just take time. :)

    My reapplication has now moved into ready for afir. I call last week about it and asked if it would be approved by next week. The one on the phone asked me why. I told her the ploughing match is on and I'm wanting to spend my money there. She sounded surprised that it was even on.

    Like have they not got a brain the their combined heads. Give farmers money before a big ag event like that is the smartest thing to do...

    My application is still at Ready for RASS stage. Has been there for almost a month now. Seems a very long, slow process. I'm not really too bothered as I won't be doing anything until next year anyway at this stage. That is of course if I actually go ahead with it at all the way things are at the minute.


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,064 ✭✭✭Grueller


    Actually seeing this reminded me that I want to ring them to remove my application.

    Good man, it will free up a bit of money for me! :D

    Seriously though, would you not just leave it be. If it gets accepted there is no onus on you to do anything. Think you have 2 years anyway and maybe this time next year we'll be seeing a €5/kg price! :D:D:D

    Going dairying and want to apply for feeders, autowash, milk meters and a new bulk tank once I have the basic parlour done from my own pocket so need this application off of the books.


  • Registered Users Posts: 651 ✭✭✭badgerhowlin


    Doesnt look like I will be purchasing at the ploughing match :'(


  • Registered Users Posts: 879 ✭✭✭Parishlad


    My application has moved to Ready for AFIT since yesterday. Will probably have another month to wait before any further update.
