**UPDATE 1st April 2020 – New Department Protocols for TB Testing During COVID-19**

IFA has secured an extension from 42 to 120 days of age for calves exempt from testing. These calves can be traded internally up to this age without a test requirement.

Farmers who have to delay tests for COVID will also be given a period of 28 days after the test due date where they can trade before the status of the herd is suspended.

The new protocol published by the DAFM is available here.


UPDATE 31st March 2020 – Marts Permitted to Faciliate Trade Between Farms

The Minister for Agriculture has confirmed that marts will be allowed to facilitate sales subject to strict procedures to be agreed with the Department.

He has also allocated additional money for the calf investment scheme (€1.5m increased to €4m) to cover all eligible applications.

There will be no scheduled inspections for the next two weeks.

IFA press release available here.

Message from IFA President, Tim Cullinan

The challenges posed by Covid-19 require a collective effort.

From speaking to many members, I know there is a particular concern about keeping farms operational in the event of illness.

IFA has over 940 branches around the country and it’s important that farmers look out for other farmers in their parish. I would ask you to be conscious of older neighbours and those with underlying medical conditions.

If you need help, I want to assure you that you that as an IFA member you are not alone, even if you are observing social isolation protocols.

While IFA has suspended all meetings at branch, county and national level we remain operational and our staff are available to assist you. Contact details are available here.

IFA is a member of the Government stakeholder forum on COVID-19 and we will share relevant information on this page with members as we receive it.

The agricultural community will play its part, as it always has, with others to keep the supply chain operating and food on people’s tables. Working together, we will all come though this very challenging time.

  • Have a weak immune system (immunosuppressed)

How can I protect myself and others from coronavirus?

  • Coronavirus is spread in a sneeze or cough droplets. To infect you, it has to get from an infected person’s nose or mouth into your eyes, nose or mouth. This can be direct or indirect (on hands, objects, surfaces etc.)
  • Physical distancing is important to help slow the spread of coronavirus. It does this by minimising contact between potentially infected individuals and healthy individuals.

Should I allow visitors onto my farm?

  • Check with your local processor/feed merchant to adhere to any specific protocols
  • Ensure that milk collection, delivery drivers have easy access to bulk tanks and feed bins

If I have to self-isolate what should I do?

  • Complete IFA’s Covid-19 Plan B form
  • Self-isolation means staying indoors and completely avoiding contact with other people.
  • You need to do this if you have symptoms of coronavirus.

Information Notice to FCI Members for Your Drivers

In view of the current situation and the Government/HSE guidelines regarding the fight against the Coronavirus, FCI is suggesting suggest some practical measures for all contractors and their teams to consider, with immediate effect.

At this time remember that the health of your teammates/machine operators and our costumers has to be your priority. Please give your team a clear set of instructions and if possible stick a copy of the short message (at the end of this notice) in a prominent place in the tractor cab.

Also, we ask that you to inform your teams about the following points:

  • Disinfect the interior tractor cab at the start and at the end of each day with a disinfectant spray
  • Disinfect the tractor cab door handles at the start and at the end of each day with a disinfectant spray
  • Adhere to social distancing and do not allow others into the tractor cabin with you

It is very important to contact your bank as soon as possible if you are being impacted or think your income is going to be impacted by COVID-19.  They will be able to support and talk to you about how to mitigate your situation.  The below applies to the 3 main banks – AIB, Bank of Ireland and Ulster Bank:

Are banks being flexible with loan repayments?

The three main banks have differing supports, but currently they are offering a 3 month payment break, which must be applied for.

Can I access credit?

Emergency working capital is being made available by the banks, they are trying to process applications as quickly as possible.  Applying online is the fastest method.

What about overdrafts?

If you do not have an overdraft facility, but need one, or if you think you will need an extension to your existing one, you must ring your bank. Currently it is better to look for a loan as the rates are high on overdrafts.

How can you get help with your mortgage?

Contact your bank, the offers range from applying for complete breaks for a period of time or an interest only arrangement. Conditions will apply.

What happens if I need more than a 3 month break?

This is an unprecedented situation, it is important to keep in touch with your bank. As the impact of Covid-19 develops, Government and banking supports are likely to change.

What other government supports are there?

There is a Credit Guarantee Scheme and dedicated page for further supports.

Who do I contact in the banks?

Bank of Ireland:

With the curtailment of the Coronavirus pandemic on everyone’s mind, it was never more important that Farm Schemes continue to operate and there is no hold up in payments when they are due.  IFA is very conscious that when this pandemic ends, Farm Schemes are protected going forward.

Farm Schemes are worth up to €1.8bn to farmers and given the critical position on farm incomes and the general economy, maximum drawdown and payment across all scheme is vital.

CAP Budget

It was expected that the EU Budget would be discussed again at a Heads of State meeting in March but this has now been postponed. It is uncertain as to when the MFF discussions will recommence. Given the fallout from the pandemic it looks likely it will be later this year before discussions resume.

CAP Transition

The new CAP 2020 will not be agreed before year end. As a result, Transition arrangements have to be put in place to ensure a continuity of measures beyond 2020. The EU Commission has proposed a one-year extension but it is generally believed that a two -year extension may be needed, meaning the new CAP may not apply until the 1st January 2023.

Of critical importance to farmers will be the continuation of multi annual Farm Schemes such as GLAS, BDGP, Sheep welfare and KT. IFA has been informed by the EU Commission in Brussels that the farmers in GLAS can get their contracts extended by either 1 or 2 years by continuing to carry out measures on their plan. 36,000 farmers finish their GLAS contracts in December next, with a further 12,000 finishing in Dec 2021. It is up the Minister to put in place the procedures for an extension of GLAS once the transition arrangements are put in place. The same applies to the 22,700 farmers in BDGP and the 18,500 farmers in Sheep welfare.

2019 GLAS Payments

As of 20thMarch 47,500 farmers have been paid €170m which represents 85% of their payment. The balancing 15% payment, worth €30m will be paid in early May when all inspections have been completed. The Department of Agriculture has informed IFA that 93% of inspections have now been undertaken and there should no delay in payments.

2020 Basic Payment Scheme applications

The online BPS application went live in mid Feb. At this stage over 30,000 applications have been made. The closing date for applications is 15th May next. The EU Commission has allowed Member States to extend the closing date for a month. However, the Department has indicated to IFA that they will not be seeking an extension as it would delay payments. IFA has made it clear there can be no payment delays.

The Department clinics and LPIS Review meetings have been postponed for the moment. However, IFA will be insisting that all applications are accepted this year.  IFA has also made a proposal to Brussels that there is a 100% payment of the BPS on October 16th next.

National Reserve and Young farmer Scheme

The 2020 National Reserve and the Young Farmer top-up scheme are also open. IFA has called for flexibility, due to the COVID19 outbreak for young farmers who had expected to have finished their Green cert courses by mid -May. Teagasc and other bodies carrying out courses should be in contact with students on their course to appraise them of the situation.

TAMS

Approvals to around 2,600 farmers who applied in Tranche 16, which closed on Jan 10th, are now been processed and approvals are been issued to commence work. However, there is a 20% carryover (660 farmers) into Tranche 17, which closes on April 24th.

TAMS payments are continuing to be made at a rate of €1.5m per week. IFA is urging that all payment claims are made once work has been completed. If problems arise in completing work due to COVID19, IFA will be making a case for an extension of time to complete work.

ANC

For the 2020 scheme it is important that farmers who are making a BPS application, tick the box to apply for the ANC scheme. Any farmers whose areas were taken out in the review as well as areas that are trying to get in under the appeal, should also tick the ANC box.

Payments will commence on the third week of September and IFA is calling for full payment (100%) to 98,000 farmers which is worth €248m.

Sheep Welfare

The Sheep Welfare Scheme is worth €10 per ewe. The balancing 15% of payment for the 2019 Sheep Welfare Scheme due to be paid in May to 18,500 farmers and worth €2.5m. The 2020 payments are due to commence in November next.

BEAM

The BEAM scheme was worth €100 per finished animal and €40 per suckler cow. With €76.72m paid out to 33,108 farmers to date, IFA is calling for the full €100m allocated to spent, as well as an additional €160m for market disturbance due to Brexit on cattle sold since May 12th 2019.

BEEP 2020

The new 2020 BEEP Scheme is worth €90 per suckler cow on the first 10 cows and €80 per cow on the remainder up to 100 cows. Applications are now open on-line with the closing date of May 15th. It is essential that sucklers farmers apply on-line as soon as possible.

BDGP

The BDGP scheme is worth €95 per suckler cow on the first 10 cows and €85 per cow on the remainder. 22,700 farmers are in this scheme which is worth €40.2m. Payments are due to commence next November.

Farm Assist

IFA is seeking flexibility from the Department of Social Protection in relation to the assessment process for the scheme. This would avoid farm visits and assessment to be done over the phone.
