BEAM Confusion

There is still widespread confusion with BEAM participants about what they need to do to comply with the scheme to avoid paying the money back in 2021. Under the scheme, participants must reduce the bovine nitrogen produced on their holding by 5% between 1 July 2020 and 30 June 2021 based on the nitrogen produced on their holdings between 1 July 2018 and 30 June 2019. The ICBF this week launched a live calculator on its website. You need to log in to your HerdPlus account to view the calculator. It gives actual numbers up to November and then predicted numbers from December on which can be edited if you think you are going to sell animals.
