Beef Efficiency Scheme

The Beef Efficiency scheme provides support to beef breeders in order to improve efficiency on their farm.

The payment will be £48 per hectare, which equates to £32 per calf. In recognition of the extra work involved in collecting and entering data, the Beef Efficiency Scheme will make, as a participating suckled calf producer, a payment equivalent to approximately £32 per calf each year for the first three years. This will be paid on an area basis.

Farmers will also be able to access a free advisory service to assist them in developing their suckler herd and in making the national herd as efficient as possible.
