Government’s Dairy Response Fund Ends Midnight, Sept 11th

The Dairy Response Fund 2020 provides support to eligible dairy farmers in England who produce cows’ milk. They now must receive applications by midnight on Friday 11 September 2020.

Since the start of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the dairy industry has faced challenges of excess milk, falling prices, and reduced demand from the hospitality sector.
Defra has set up a fund to help those dairy farmers most in need in England overcome the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.  The new funding will help support dairy farmers who have seen decreased demand for their products as bars, restaurants and cafes have had to close. The fund is administered by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA).

Please read the Dairy Response Fund Handbook (the pdf file will download to your device) to see if you are eligible to apply. Only use the application form if you meet the eligibility requirements detailed in the handbook. Download the pdf Application form  HERE and apply for a one-off payment.
