Suckler Welfare Scheme payments to begin - Fitzpatrick


Payments under the 2008 Suckler Welfare Scheme will begin on Monday the 17th of November according to local Fianna Fail TD Michael Fitzpatrick.

“The payments of €80 per cow will continue on a rolling basis for calves born in 2008 as additional animals become eligible.”

“Payments will begin now and continue into 2009.”

“Eligible farmers should complete and return their forms, either paper or on-line as soon as possibly to ensure speedy process and payment.”

“The Minister for Agriculture has assured me that his Department are now issuing letter to farmers where there are any queries and that every effort is being made to clear outstanding cases.”

“Any farmers in Kildare who need clarification or have any queries should phone the lo-call number 1890 252 707,” concluded Deputy Fitzpatrick.
