Animal Health and Welfare
APPLICATIONS NOW OPEN
The window for applications is now open. It will remain open for 12 weeks. The deadline is 15 June at midday.
These grants are offered through the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund. They represent the next step on the Animal Health and Welfare Pathway. Just like other parts of the Pathway, it has been developed through careful co-design with farmers, academics, vets and industry groups.
So, if you are a livestock farmer who keeps cattle, pigs, sheep, broiler chickens or laying hens, this is a great opportunity to get some funding towards the cost of items that will help improve the health and welfare of your livestock.
These grants, of between £1,000 and £25,000, go towards the cost of items from a list which are designed to improve the health and welfare of your livestock.
The list announced includes items that farmers will find useful for their businesses and help to improve the health and welfare of their animals such as;
Mobile cattle handling system
Hydraulic or pneumatic operated squeeze crush
Mobile sheep handling systems
Electronic weigh crate for sheep
Electronic pig weighing and sorting facility
Enclosed piglet creeps with heat pad
Automatic weigh scale for poultry
Spin feeder for poultry
Auto vaccination gun for livestock
Electric fencing package
