What are the grants?
The government have now opened the Farming Equipment and Technology Fund (FETF2023), which provides grants to improve efficiency and production on your farm, whilst aiding the environment.
FETF2023 has two separate themes; Productivity and Slurry grant and Animal Health and Welfare.
To invest in our new herd-monitoring solution, Ingenuity, you can apply for the Productivity and Slurry grant , which can award you between £1,000, and £25,000 towards your technology investment.
Why should you invest in Ingenuity?
Ingenuity is a herd-monitoring and management solution, designed to save you time and maximise your herd’s performance.
This technology provides insights on your herd’s behaviour and activity with the aim of improving fertility, health and well-being.
The system combines a customised and flexible blend of the latest innovation in herd-monitoring technology (collar or pedometer), insights, data and reports, LED cow locator, sort-gates, artificial Insemination (AI) Services, and our expertise, support & back-up.
How can I apply?
To apply for this grant, please see the guidance noted on the government’s web page.
What do our customers think?
“I can now minimise antibiotic usage by checking cows on the Ingenuity system and treating them as soon as a health alert appears.
“I am grateful that the system has allowed all my staff to easily and effectively use the alerts to improve overall herd health.”
Simon and Ben Davies
“We call it an electronic 24-hour herdsman, it has enabled heats, locomotion issues and mastitis to be detected on our 170 cow milking herd.
“It has enabled us to enjoy peace of mind when employing new staff and being away from the farm, giving us more freedom to concentrate on other things.”
