The Dairy Farm Grant was launched as a pilot scheme in 2017, and supports the installation of variable speed drive technology in milking parlours, as well as Vacuum Pumps, and smart meters. These technologies can reduce energy consumption considerably on a farm and the scheme offers grant support of 50% of the total cost of the technology.  47 farms benefitted from Dairy Pilot scheme in 2017, and the scheme was launched for a second successive year in June 2018.

Funding description: 
The scheme was allocated €188,000 in 2017 and €400,000 in 2018
