Animal Welfare - Apply for subsidies

Service Description

The Thuringian Animal Welfare Promotion Guideline is the Thuringian program to support livestock farmers in voluntarily introducing or maintaining particularly animal-friendly husbandry practices.

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

This grant is intended to compensate, at least proportionally, for ongoing additional costs associated with the management of certain husbandry methods. The prerequisite is animal-friendly husbandry methods that go beyond the legally prescribed standards of animal welfare and are included in the subsidy catalog of this guideline according to number 2.

Amount of funding requested

The grant is awarded as project funding by way of fixed-amount financing in the form of a non-repayable annual grant. The amount of the grant is generally based on the size 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 the commitment period in accordance with the grant requirements.

Further information can be found in the Thuringian Animal Welfare Funding Guideline. This will be made available after approval of the GAP strategic plan.
