Manorhamilton IFA Branch would like to make all farmers in the North Leitrim area aware of an important letter from the Department of Agriculture to farmers who do not meet the new rules for Disadvantaged Areas payments.
Farmers who in 2011 did not have a high enough stocking rate to meet the new minimum stocking rate should have received a letter asking if they wish to apply for a derogation. This is a very important letter which must be returned to the Department by this Friday August 24th.
Any farmer who has received this letter & has any queries or would like assistance please feel free to contact an officer in IFA Manorhamilton branch. Contact details are as follows:
Chairperson Kieran Fox 086 2208271; Secretary Liam Gallagher 087 6679439 and Livestock Committe Delegate Liam Gilligan 087 2294700.
