The Countryside Productivity Small Grant Scheme is now open for farmers in England to help fund the purchase of new equipment. It is open to bids of between £3,000 and £12,000, and the window closes on 14th March 2018.
Grants can cover up to 40% of the eligible cost of the application. The items included in the scheme have been identified as helping achieve improvements in either animal welfare, resource efficiency or nutrient management.
A wide range of items are eligible for funding within the grant scheme including cattle and sheep handling systems, calf milk dispensers, weighing equipment, EID equipment and calving detectors, to name but a few.
The scheme falls under the wider Countryside Productivity Scheme and is funded through the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development via the Rural Development Programme for England.
