Beef Data and Genomics Programme
€38 Million So Far Paid out Under Bdgp
IFA Livestock Chairman Angus Woods has urged farmers in the Beef Data and Genomics Programme to ensure they submit the required data and samples to be eligible for payment.
Just under €38million has so far issued to almost 21,000 farmers under the Scheme, Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed confirmed in the Dáil this week. Payments are continuing on an ongoing basis as compliance is achieved.
Approximately 1,200 herds in the BDGP have not yet returned any genomic samples and a further 3,000 herds have not submitted sufficient samples and/or data to be eligible for payment.
