BOVINE TB: Capital grants to help reduce the risk of bovine TB transmission and improve handling facilities

The Rural Development Programme for England (RDPE) Farming and Forestry Improvement Scheme (FFIS) provides capital grants for eligible items, some of which would aid livestock farmers’ efforts to keep TB off of their farm. 
These include:

·       feeding / water troughs
·       lick holders
·       upgrading static cattle crushes
·       buying mobile cattle crushes

Tranche 3 of the FFIS is now open for applications, and closes on 4 April 2014.
