Dairy Response Fund 2020

19 June 2020

Since the start of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the dairy industry has faced challenges of excess milk, falling prices, and reduced demand from the hospitality sector.

Defra has set up a fund to help those dairy farmers most in need in England overcome the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The new funding will help support dairy farmers who have seen decreased demand for their products as bars, restaurants and cafes have had to close.

The fund will be administered by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA).

Applications must be received by midnight on Friday 14 August 2020.
