To apply for a grant please fill in the form which can be downloaded here and return it to Sharon Brown 


Please note that the successful applicant will have to book their own place and make any arrangement for accommodation themselves. Any additional costs will be paid for by the successful applicant. The appropriate grant amount will then be paid retrospectively on supply of evidence of attendance.

If the number of applicants exceeds the number of places offered, the most appropriate applicant will be chosen based on the information given in the application form, and if required the referee. In the event of a competition for places a DairyCo board member will oversee the selection of those receiving the grant.

A scoring system for the answers on the form has been prepared and is designed to select the candidates who will benefit most from attendance.

Only levy payers, or those working in a levy paying business, are eligible to apply. DairyCo staff, DairyCo Board members and those working in their dairy businesses (family and employed staff) are not eligible to apply.
