Single farm payment

On a farm visit outside Templemore, Co. Tipperary, a dairy farmer expressed concern at the Single Farm Payment Scheme.   It was leaving him in a situation where he could not access land to rent. With the present system farmers can take a single cut of silage, sell it and keep a few dry cattle to maintain their entitlements which were set 12 years ago based on production status at that time.
