€100m BEEF EXCEPTIONAL AID MEASURE (BEAM)
**Update: The online application process has been extended to 5pm, September 20th.**
The €100m Beef Exceptional Aid Measure (BEAM) was secured by IFA for Beef and Suckler farmers in recognition of the huge losses experienced due to the market volatility associated with BREXIT following an extensive lobbying campaign.
This scheme is for cattle slaughtered between 24th September 2018 and 12th May 2019 inclusive and calves registered in suckler herds in 2018
IFA has raised concerns with some of the Terms and Conditions of the scheme and will continue to seek changes in favour of farmers.
IFA is also seeking additional funding for cattle slaughtered since 12th May in recognition of the on-going price difficulties and for suckler cows in 2019.
