They can apply for a one-off payment.
The application deadline for the Dairy Response Fund has been extended, applications must be received by midnight on Friday, September 11, 2020.
Since the start of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the dairy industry has faced challenges of excess milk, falling prices, and reduced demand from the hospitality sector.
Defra has set up a fund to help those dairy farmers most in need in England overcome the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
The funding will help support dairy farmers who have seen decreased demand for their products as bars, restaurants and cafes have had to close.
The fund will be administered by the Rural Payments Agency (RPA), you can apply via the link here.
