Increase in Calf Investment Scheme Funding Welcomed
IFA National Dairy Chairman Tom Phelan today (Tuesday) welcomed the increase in the Calf Investment Scheme budget from €1.5m to €4m, as this should allow for all eligible applications to be grant aided to the full 40% promised in the scheme.
The scheme is crucial to farmers who in many cases this spring have needed to hold on to calves a little longer on farms.
Mr Phelan reminded farmers that the date by which claims for the CIS grant must be returned to the Department of Agriculture is 30th June next.
