Targeted Advisory Service on Animal Health (TASAH)

As part of the Rural Development Plan 2014-2020, DAFM, in conjunction with the EU, are funding a Targeted Advisory Service on Animal Health (TASAH) for farmers, delivered by trained veterinary practitioners.

  • Irish Johne’s Control Programme (IJCP)- launching soon
