Last week, Defra published further details about the Animal Health and Welfare Pathway in this blog. Funding for an annual vet visit and testing for some endemic diseases will be available from this Spring and Animal Health and Welfare grants will be available later in 2022. Defra is seeking views by 22nd March on what items they should fund under this scheme which will include both equipment and technology above the regulatory baseline. There will be lower value grants for items from £50 up to around £10,000 and larger investments of over £10,000 for improvements to buildings and infrastructure. There are suggested items for each category of livestock – click on the links for details and to give your views: Sheep, Dairy and beef cattle.
