In relation to ANC payments, many farmers will only meet the stocking retention requirements in the coming weeks in order to qualify for payment.

For both the BPS and ANC schemes, regular pay runs are in place so that cases are paid as they become clear. Preparations are also underway in my Department for the commencement of balancing payments under both schemes in early December.
