Stockbreeders’ bank accounts were today fed with BGN 25 million, Minister of Agriculture and Food Dr. Miroslav Naydenov said in Cherniche.


This is the second tranche of the schemes for national complementary payments. The breeders of cattle, buffalos, sheep and she-goats will receive BGN 60 per cattle, BGN 140 per buffalo and BGN 11 for the small animals.


The first tranche of the national complementary payments for cattle and buffalo not related to production and for the support of sheep and she goats, to the amount of BGN 68 million, was paid out back in October when beneficiaries received BGN 140 per cattle, BGN 210 per buffalo, and BGN 30 per ewe or she-goat. Today’s subsidy takes the total 2012 aid per head to BGN 350 for buffalos, BGN 200 per cattle and BGN 41 per ewe and she-goat. Adding the resources paid out under the European Agricultural Guarantee Fund (EAGF) brings the total support to BGN 130 million in Campaign 2012.
