BeefWith the way things have been going in the beef industry over the last few months any opportunity to avail of additional funding in the sector has to be welcomed but more importantly claimed. Animals eligible for payment under the BEEP are suckler calves (beef sire x beef dam) born from July 1, 2018 to June 30, 2019. The suckler cow and her calf must be weighed on the same day and must be weighed individually. Scales can be purchased from your local Drummonds Branch.
