Ireland launches new €25m sheep welfare scheme

This article was originally published in Agra Europe

The initiative requires farmers to choose actions which can improve the overall welfare of a flock based on whether the farmer has a lowland flock or hill flock. These includes options such as lameness control, parasite control and mineral supplementation. These actions must be completed over a 12-month period.  In return the farmer will receive a payment of €10 per breeding ewe, depending on the average number of ewes held on their farm in the years 2014 and 2015.
