CATTLE FARMERS URGED TO REPLACE OLDER SLATS USING TAMS FUNDING

ICSA Rural Development chair Tim Farrell has urged farmers to consider applying for TAMS funding to replace older slats in cattle sheds. “Many cattle farmers are unaware that grants for replacing slats are available through TAMS. However, it is possible to apply for such grants under the Animal Welfare, Safety and Nutrient Storage part of the scheme,” he said.  

“Farmers often underestimate the level of wear and tear that can accrue on slats. Often the seriousness of the damage is not uncovered until the slats are actually lifted, revealing the true level of decay. It is a really important safety issue and any farmer who believes their slats may be passed their best should consider replacing them as a matter of urgency.” 

Farmers can apply under the TAMS Animal Welfare, Safety and Nutrient Storage Scheme until 16 April 2021.
