Creed said the BDGP will "bring about reductions in Ireland’s greenhouse gas emissions"

Payments under the 2019 Beef Data and Genomics Programme have commenced, according to the Minister to Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed.

He stated that payments worth more than €17.5 million have already issued and will continue over the coming days to participating farmers who have verified their compliance with the 2019 requirements.

“I am pleased that payments have commenced for the fifth year of this innovative programme which will bring about reductions in Ireland’s greenhouse gas emissions while also introducing genetic technology into the national herd thus improving farm profitability.”

“BDGP payments will continue to issue on an ongoing basis as more farmers verify their compliance with the 2019 scheme requirements.”

Complete action

The Minister urged participating farmers to return all surveys and genotyping samples and/or complete the carbon navigator update as soon as possible to facilitate payment.

“Payments under BDGP II issued last week and were preceded by payments under the Beef Environmental Efficiency Pilot (BEEP). In recent months, my Department has been issuing payments to farmers across a range of schemes including BPS, ANC, Knowledge Transfer, GLAS, and the new Sheep Welfare Scheme.”

“I am very aware of the importance of these schemes for the farming community, and they provide a significant financial boost for both individual farmers and the wider rural economy.”

Since September, a total of €1.62 billion has now been paid out to farmers under a range of schemes operated by the Department of Agriculture, Minister Creed confirmed.
