Farmers across the UK have started to receive their share of support payments from the EU Dairy Fund, two weeks ahead of schedule. The flat rate payment for dairy farmers – linked to milk production – is just under 0.176 pence per litre. The first payments have been made by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) to around 10,000 eligible farmers with the remainder to be paid throughout November and December. In order to receive the dairy fund payment farmers must be registered on the Rural Payments system. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact WebbPaton or the RPA Helpline on 03000 200 301.
