Defra unveils £10m funding for cattle shed upgrades

Defra has announced a £10m funding pot available to livestock farmers in England to be used to replace existing cattle sheds. 

The Animal Health and Welfare Infrastructure Grant will allocate awards to farmers ranging from £15,000 to £500,000, prioritising new and upgrades calf housing.

The application window is expected to open later this summer.

Through this grant, cattle farmers will be able to access funding for rooftop solar panels on calf housing buildings. This will enable farmers to improve the thermal insulation of their building whilst also providing low-cost energy for calf housing.

Any grants received will have to be co-financed by the farmer. Other public money, such as grant funding from local authorities cannot be used towards the project costs.

The minimum grant that can be applied for is £15,000 and the maximum grant is £500,000 per applicant business. Grants can cover up to a maximum rate of 40% of the eligible costs of a project. If rooftop solar panels are part of the project only 25% of the eligible costs of these will be covered.
