Sheep Technology Adoption Programme Payments
The person named was a participant in the 2015 Sheep Technology Adoption Programme (STAP). As part of his commitment under that scheme he undertook to carry out a faecal egg count reduction test. Appendix III to the Terms and Conditions of the scheme sets out the instructions for this test, including the stipulation that re-sampling must take place 14 days after treatment. As this requirement has not been met, the person named is in breach of the Terms and Conditions of the Programme and accordingly does not qualify for payment.
