The deadline to apply for the main farming support schemes under the new CAP is falling this Friday.

Last week, the Irish Farmers' Journal started a new series of live video broadcasts bringing experts around the editor's table to share the best technical advice. For the first edition, Justin McCarthy invited Brendan Gleeson, who oversees meat policy at the Department of Agriculture; geneticist Andrew Cromie of the ICBF; and IFA’s director of livestock Kevin Kinsella to discuss the Beef Data and Genomics Programme. You can also watch the entire show here.

This Friday is also the deadline to apply for the Basic Payment Scheme, and young farmers have every reason to make sure their forms are handed in on time, with a special top-up and some of them eligible to apply for entitlements from the national reserve. There is also a new support scheme for investment in their farm buildings opening this week. Macra na Feirme was one of the organizations that lobbied hardest to get dedicated support for young farmers: let’s hear from their president Seán Finan and their rural affairs manager Derry Dillon.

With beef breeding and farm payments very much in the news, John Egerton, one of the regular contributors to the Farmers Journal's “Farmer writes” column, shares his radical views on both issues.

Finally, Irish Country Living’s Money Mentor Peter Young talks to consumer editor Ciara Leahy about the tax implications when parents plan to transfer shares to their children - such as those spun out to them when their co-ops changed their corporate structures.
