Grazing your landscape (NE55)

This leaflet updates the MAFF (now Defra) publication ‘Your livestock and your landscape’. It explains how Overgrazing and Unsuitable Supplementary Feeding controls will be implemented under the Single Payment Scheme, agri-environment schemes and the Hill Farm Allowance. It also gives advice to farmers on how to identify and avoid these particular practices in areas important to wildlife. This leaflet supplements the ‘Single Payment Scheme: cross compliance guidance for the management of habitats and landscape features’ booklet, which sets out the minimum standards for maintaining the condition of the land you farm. You should also read the ‘Single Payment Scheme: cross compliance handbook for England’. Copies of these publications will have been sent to all farmers who applied for payment from the Single Payment Scheme.
