Deadline approaching for second milk reduction period

Published 7 October 16

The deadline for the next round of the EU’s milk reduction production scheme is 12 October at 11am. This reduction period will run from 1 November 2016 to 31 January 2017. Just over 11m litres remain available for applications, after the scheme filled quickly during its first phase.

Farmers who put in successful applications for the first reduction period are not able to apply for the second or third (if it runs) periods. Details on how to apply can be found on the RPA’s website
