“Beginning today, payments to the value of €13,239,560 are issuing to 13,290 farmers, giving a total of €15,306,280 being paid to 16,424 farmers participating in the Pilot.
“The data provided under this important initiative will help to improve the environmental and economic performance of our suckler herds.”
The Minister added “Payments under BDGP and BEAM will also commence in the coming weeks representing a total of €120M in support for our beef sector in 2019.
I am very aware of how important this support is, not just for beef farmers and their families, but for the communities in which they live and the wider rural economy.” ■
