IFA says changes in the sec­ond year of the Knowl­edge Trans­fer Scheme in­clude al­low­ing par­tic­i­pants the op­tion of at­tend­ing three meet­ings, along with two events.

The min­i­mum 60% par­tic­i­pa­tion rate for meet­ings will be abol­ished, and fur­ther train­ing of fa­cil­i­ta­tors will be put in place to im­prove the con­tent of the scheme, said IFA Deputy Pres­i­dent Richard Kennedy af­ter a meet­ing with the Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture. He called for the vet­eri­nary in­volve­ment to be clar­i­fied, and the vet­eri­nary charg­ing regime to be abol­ished. Around 18,400 farm­ers have fully or partly com­pleted their first year Farm Plan, out the 19,100 par­tic­i­pants.
