Sheep farmers can avail of grant aid towards the erection of sheep fencing on their farms through the Targeted, Agricultural, Modernisation Scheme (TAMS) II. The grant aid is quite attractive as qualifying young trained farmers can receive up to 60% grant aid towards the cost of erecting fencing while general applicants can receive 40% grant aid. The main two points to consider if you are planning on going down the sheep fencing route through TAMS are the procedures to follow in making your application and the Department specifications.
