New Government Funding to Support Dairy Farmers Through Coronavirus

Posted 06/05/2020

The Government have today announced a new fund that will enable dairy farmers in England access to up to £10,000 each to help them overcome the impact of the coronavirus outbreak.

With some dairy farmers facing financial difficulties and excess milk, the new fund will provide support for those most in need.

Eligible dairy farmers will be entitled to up to £10,000 each, to cover 70% of their lost income during April and May to ensure they can continue to operate and sustain production capacity without impacts on animal welfare.

Eligible dairy farmers who have lost more than 25% of their income over April and May due to coronavirus disruptions will be eligible to access this funding for those qualifying months, with no cap set on the number of farmers who can receive this support or on the total funding available.

More detail on the fund will be issued in due course and we will add new posts as we receive further information.
