The Beef Exceptional Aid Measure (BEAM) has provided temporary exceptional adjustment aid to farmers in the beef sector in Ireland subject to the conditions set out in EU Commission Implementing Regulation (EU) 2019/1132.  Under the terms of that regulation, and the scheme as notified to the European Commission, it is not possible to open a second round of applications for the measure.
