Heard the details of this was announced today and we can apply in third week of August......presume it applies to cattle sold through the mart also?




From the document it looks like its only animals presented for slaughter...does that mean you had to bring them to the factory and any sold through a mart are not eligible?

Only cattle that were slaughtered are eligible. Also dairy farmers with less than 40 cows who finished cattle are included.

Anyone else find these schemes vaguely insulting?? 40 per suckler cow-ffs! I know money is money but I’d prefer to get paid what my animals are worth as opposed to propping up the factories!!

I sold four cows in the mart which were killed shortly after.
Am I right in saying i get nothing and the lads that got them killed get €400?

They can stick it where the sun don't shine as far as I'm concerned, being dictated to enough already do the bdgp scheme, as someone else said pay us a fair price for our cattle

‘To qualify for payment, farmers must reduce the production of bovine livestock manure nitrogen per herd by 5%.

The target period for the reduction will be between 1 July 2020 and 30 June 2021.

The 5% reduction will be based on a reference period from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2019.’

In plain English does the above mean if I calved 20 suckler cows in 2018, does this mean I have to get rid of one cow between July 2020 and 30 June 2021 in order to qualify for payment? Is there any other ways to reduce nitrogen manure ?

If it was bought by a dealer then they don't qualify - "Animals controlled by factory or dealer/agent herds will not be eligible for payment"
