Animal Health and Welfare Infrastructure Grant


On 26 July 2023 the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) announced that £10 million of government funding is being made available to cattle farmers in England to help them replace ageing cattle buildings with state-of-the-art facilities.

As set out in guidance, the Animal Health and Welfare Infrastructure Grant will allocate awards to farmers ranging from £15,000 to £500,000, to build new, upgrade, or replace existing calf housing buildings to deliver health and welfare benefits for calves.

Through this grant, cattle farmers will also be able to access funding for roof-top solar panels on calf housing buildings to improve the thermal insulation of their building whilst providing low-cost energy for calf housing.
