The Welsh Small Grant Efficiency Scheme is specifically aimed at supporting farmers to produce food in a sustainable way, whilst taking proactive action to respond to the climate emergency and to help reverse the decline in biodiversity.
It focuses on providing capital funding to help farmers in Wales to improve the technical, financial and environmental performance of their farm businesses.
The objectives are to:
- increase on-farm investment
- increase technical performance
- increase on-farm production efficiencies
- increase on-farm resource efficiencies
- enhance the use of technology to improve management decisions.
For qualifying products and solutions, the scheme supports capital investments in equipment and technology that have been pre-identified as offering clear and quantifiable benefits to your farm business.
Datamars Livestock, and its associated local UK business KiwiKit Roxan, firmly believe in the value that technology can deliver on farm – in fact, we make it the core of our business to ensure our solutions work better, together.
As such we are 100% behind the Welsh Small Grant Efficiency scheme, making sure that our team are fully informed about the benefits it can offer you and your farm business.
To help identify which Datamars Livestock products are eligible, and what exact benefit is available to you we have produced the below product/solution overview, along with a referenced value available from the grant.
