Minister Coveney Launches Department's Schemes and Services Booklet

The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Simon Coveney today officially launched the Department’s 'Schemes and Services 2014-2020 ' booklet.

The Minister said "My Department places great value on those involved in the agriculture, fishing and forestry sectors and their immense contribution to the Irish economy. Notwithstanding all of the new technology and systems, we are very conscious of the need for a comprehensive reference guide to assist all of our customers in their regular interaction with the Department on its many schemes and services. In this regard I am very pleased to introduce the Schemes and Services 2014 – 2020 booklet. I recommend that you take time to read this publication and see what support or service my Department can provide to you.

The Schemes and Services 2014-2020 booklet provides details of the various payment schemes administered by the Department, highlights important dates, covers matters relating to animal health and welfare, the numerous support measures that are in place, food safety controls and many other services. It also contains useful information in relation to services available to the farming community in particular from other Government Departments as well as Agencies under the aegis of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.

The booklet is also available to view on the Department’s website on the following link http://www.agriculture.gov.ie/publications/2016 . Copies are also available from the Department’s  offices in Backweston, Cavan, Clonakilty, Portlaoise and Johnstown Castle, Wexford and Teagasc offices.
