Cattle handling facilities including mobile cattle crushes, weighing scales, calving gates as well as numerous more farmyard upgrades are part of the eligible items under the new farm safety scheme.

Grant aid of 40% is being made available to farmers under the new scheme, as announced by the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Simon Coveney.

He announced the measures as part of Budget 2015 as part of a targeted scheme to help farmers upgrade the standard of safety on their farms.

“I can’t think of anything that would have a higher priority than a loved one’s life and I would appeal to the farming community to look at this scheme carefully and examine the list of eligible investment items to address the safety issues identified. It is in all our interests and responsibility to raise the level of safety on our farms. It might just be the best investment ever carried out,” he said.
