Wel­come for ANC deal

The Sligo Champion - - NEWS -

IFA’S Sligo chair­man, JP Cow­ley has wel­comed the an­nounce­ment that Sligo will re­tain its al­lo­ca­tion of Ar­eas of Nat­u­ral Con­straints (ANCs), fol­low­ing the re­cently com­pleted re­view of the scheme by the Depart­ment of Agri­cul­ture, Food and the Ma­rine. HE said, “The ANC Scheme (pre­vi­ously the Dis­ad­van­taged Ar­eas Scheme and the Less Favoured Ar­eas Scheme) has been a vi­tal sup­port for farm­ers in Ire­land since the 1970s. IFA, on be­half our mem­bers in Sligo, fought hard to en­sure that there would be no re­duc­tion in these vi­tal pay­ments for Sligo farm­ers.”
