Ireland: Glanbia payed subsidy

In Ireland the biggest dairy cooperative Glanbia has in May paid to its member dairy farms a subsidy of 0.20 eurocents per litre delivered milk to boost biodiversity on dairy farms. Among the measures Glanbia Ireland is encouraging dairy farmers to consider for their farms are: riparian buffer strips on watercourses; creating shelter belts and wildlife corridors; pollinator plots; planting additional hedgerows and native trees. Later this year, a survey of the 4500 family farms supplying milk to Glanbia Ireland will be undertaken to measure progress and provide advice on enhancing the standards of biodiversity on the farms.
