DAIRY RESPONSE FUND DEADLINE EXTENDED
Updated: Aug 11
The application deadline for the Dairy Response Fund has been extended to midnight on 11 September 2020. This gives eligible farmers more time to apply for a single payment from the fund.
Qualifying farmers are entitled to up to £10,000 each to cover 70% of their losses across April and May incurred as a result of a drop in price, following a reduced demand for milk with the closure of restaurants, bars, and cafes in recent months.
To be eligible for support from the fund,farmers in England need to demonstrate that they have suffered a reduction in the average price paid for their milk of 25% or more in April 2020 when compared with February 2020.
