To whom and on what terms

The animal welfare payment includes measures selected by animal species that improve animal welfare. The compensation is paid on the basis of the calculated costs arising from the implementation of the measure, for example on the basis of working hours and materials.

The amount of compensation is based on the actual number of livestock units for the selected measures.

In the case of pigs and poultry, the payment of the compensation is subject to the condition that you report the actual number of animals in the Vipu service.
