The Scheme gives direct support to specialist beef producers in Scotland. The Scheme pays on male and female calves which are at least 75% beef bred and at least 30 days old. Calves must have been born on a Scottish holding and kept for at least 30 days. There is no limit on the number of claims that producers can make in a year.

Producers are being encouraged to submit their claims now. This will help the Scottish Executive to process and validate claims in time to calculate the headage payment rates, to allow payments as soon as possible in March 2007.

It will also allow time to resolve and rectify any problems arising as a result of validation.

The payment rates will vary from year to year, depending on the total number of eligible animals claimed in Scotland each year. £20.19 million will be available for this Scheme year.

Scottish Beef Calf Scheme claim forms are available from all SEERAD area offices, or claims can be submitted online at
