Cowen provides update on €50m fund for finishers

Minister of Agriculture, Food and Marine, Barry Cowen, TD has provided an update in relation to the €50 million COVID-19 fund for beef finishers.

Speaking last Friday, July 10th, during a live forum as part of Teagasc’s Virtual Beef Week, he said: “I hope to finalise the €50 million COVID support scheme for beef finishers in the next week, or ten days, with payments being made later in the year,”

“Low family farm incomes are still the single biggest challenge facing the beef industry and will require a multi-faceted approach to address.

“Support programmes such as the BDGP and BEEP have been important in incentivising a more efficient suckler system of production as well as supporting farmers’ income.”
