Unfortunately, the checker scored dairy sector applications ‘weak’ or ‘average’. It did not appear possible to score highly.
This was investigated. A glitch in the scoring was identified and it has now been fixed.
We are sorry that this happened.
People who applied (and were affected) will be contacted by the Rural Payments Agency and given an updated score. You do not need to resubmit your application. Please note that not all applications will automatically score higher.
Those who were deterred from applying because of this are encouraged to try again.
No one will be disadvantaged because of this.
If you have any questions, please email the Rural Payments Agency firstname.lastname@example.org
