Claim aid or risk losing it

SEVERAL hundred dairy farmers still havent claimed their share of agrimoney compensation.

They risk losing it unless forms are returned promptly, warns the Intervention Board. "Just under 1000 reminder letters were sent out early last week and there are still about 700 forms left to come in." The Oct 31 deadline has been removed and producers are being urged to submit forms as soon as possible. Those received after that date will be paid if there is time for the IB to process them.

"Inaccuracies in form filling slow the process, but if they send the forms in now they will be paid." &#42
