Written answers (Question to Agriculture)

My Department provides financial support measures for farmers under the Bovine Viral Diarrhoea programme (BVD). The herdowner's initial application for compensation under the scheme was refused as he did not satisfy all the terms and conditions.

My Department subsequently received an appeal, which was approved and a compensation payment was issued to the herd owner on 19th June 2019.
