Northern Ireland: Pig Support Package

At the Balmoral Show, Edwin Poots announced that the application period for a support package for pig producers in Northern Ireland is to open this week (w/c 16th May). The scheme, worth up to £2 million, will make payments to those producers who incurred price penalties on overweight pigs that were outside contract specifications from September 2021 to February 2022 due to the backlog situation on farms.

Eligible producers will be contacted by DAERA, and will be invited to apply via Online Services. More information is available here.
