Common Agricultural Policy and Young Farmers: Engagement with Macra na Feirme

Mr. Derrie Dillon:

Where we have facilitators based is where we have the highest level of arrangements and engagements, which is natural from a geographical perspective. There certainly had been a higher number in the dairy sector. I suppose that is natural and inevitable. However, we are seeing a good response from other sectors as well. There could be a greater focus on those sectors. If the taxation incentives could be tweaked in order to make it more attractive for those sectors to engage in succession and if the models could be tweaked a little bit in terms of the type of arrangements that are possible, I think we are not limited then by our ambition but we need to act from a taxation point of view as well.
