Quota leasing deadline
PRODUCERS leasing milk quota must ensure applications are posted on or before Dec 30 to meet the deadline for temporary transfers, warn Intervention Board officials.
IB offices will close on Dec 24 and do not reopen until Jan 3. That means any additional information needed by farmers to complete the MQ/3 and MQ/4 quota forms for the 1999/2000 milk year must be obtained before the holiday period.
Post offices across the country will be shut on Dec 31. *
