IFA National Rural Development Chairman Joe Brady has advised farmers who have not lodged their ANC appeal to do so without delay.
Around 700 appeals have been lodged by farmers representing the townland, on behalf of all or most of the farmers in the townland. Appeals are in for 460 townlands.
Joe Brady said, “It’s important that the farmers are provided with all the information relevant to the appeal and that the process involves on-ground analysis, reviews the information on how the area was assessed, and gives a timescale for the completion of the appeals process”.
He advised farmers who are appealing to tick the ANC box on the upcoming 2019 BPS application which will qualify them for payment should they succeed with their appeal.
