REVISED Beef Cattle Improvement Scheme

Suckler cow owners can apply to the Vaughan Trust for financial assistance to purchase a performance recorded beef bull. The value of this award is 50% of the purchase price, up to a maximum award of £800.

The farmer pictured is Gordon Thompson, Kesh, who has recently purchased a high index Charolais bull and received a bull award under the Beef Cattle Improvement Scheme. To qualify the Vaughan does not specify breed of bull however the bull must have equal to or above average index through performance weight recording.
