Milk Quota Appeals Tribunal
The MQAT, an independent panel of farmer and industry representatives, allocates National Reserve milk quota permanently to small producers in hardship situations (Hardship Scheme) and temporarily to producers who exceed their quota purely because their herd was restricted due to animal disease (Animal Disease Scheme).
The National Reserve is now very depleted, and the ability of allocations to alleviate the situation of animal disease cases has been severely diminished.
