A Galway TD has received confirmation from the Agriculture Minister that grants to convert existing sheds to slatted units are covered under the TAMS II scheme.
Deputy Eamon O’ Cuiv says a number of farmers across the county have expressed concern over their eligibility to convert hay sheds and other similar structures to slatted units.
The Fianna Fail Deputy says Minister Simon Coveney has confirmed that in the case of existing loose houses, grant aid is available to farmers to install new slurry tanks and slats.
Deputy O’ Cuiv says a shed conversion is a much more finacially viable option for many farmers.
