Animal welfare - apply for funding

Service Description

The Thuringian Animal Welfare Promotion Directive is the Thuringian program to support livestock farmers in the voluntary introduction or maintenance of particularly animal-friendly husbandry methods.

The adaptation of production structures to further increasing requirements with regard to animal welfare, in conjunction with sustainable agricultural production in livestock farming, is associated with considerable additional costs.

This grant is intended to compensate, at least proportionately, for process-related ongoing additional costs in the context of the management of certain husbandry methods.

Amount of funding applied for

The grant is awarded as project funding by way of fixed-amount financing in the form of a non-repayable annual subsidy. The amount of the grant is generally based on the scope of the commitment in livestock units (LU) or animal places. It is calculated on the basis of the number of animals or animal places that are demonstrably kept in accordance with the grant requirements during the commitment period.
