An updated Beef Environmental Efficiency Programme (BEEP) for suckler farmers is set to be announced tomorrow with a maximum payment of €90/cow

BEEP (SUCKLERS), which has a funding provision of €35m in 2020, will target the weaning efficiency of suckler cows and calves - measuring the live weight of the calf at weaning as a percentage of the cow's live weight.

In recognition of the important role of animal health and welfare in economic and environmental efficiency, participants in the programme will also be encouraged to implement a number of optional health and welfare measures.
