A 2018 Basic Payment Application was received in respect of the person named on 26 March 2018.

The processing of his application was completed and an advance payment issued on 16 October 2018. A balancing payment issued 03 December 2018. Both payments issued to the nominated bank account of the person named.

In relation to the query on the Depopulation Grant, the person named did not receive a Depopulation Grant as his TB infected animals were not removed through a depopulation arrangement with the Department.

His animals were removed as TB reactor animals and in-contact TB reactor animals and he was subsequently paid compensation under the On Farm Market Valuation Scheme. The person named received a Reactor/In Contact Payment and additionally Income Supplement Grant payments for the animals removed.
